[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Feeding the birds in London.

No adjustment of color or sharpness, and no cropping at all. It was a 'one-second-shot'. Had one opportunity and had to act as quick as I could :o)

P.S.: the reason why some legs are 'missing' is because the birds pull up their legs while flying (a bit like an airplane I supose). They were just getting ready to land as I took the picture.

Great shot. Love the legs. Must have been very difficult. Just a pity the 2 cut-off ones on the right got in the picture. But you can't have everything in such short time. Congratulations.

Vous avwz bien fait de saisir ce moment opportun, un moment qui ne se représente plus.
Et vous nous la présentez telle quelle. Bravo. Moi, j'aime bien. La mise au point est très bonne.
Il faut revenir.

I love this photo! It really makes me feel like I'm there and the birds are about to land on my head. Great blue color to the sky and the orange legs & feet really make a nice contrast. I wanted to see what it would look like without the two birds on the right so I posted a workshop. Great photo you've taken though, it really didn't need anything.

Hi Kelly, I haven't seen you before. Good, quick-action shot. So easy to miss them! Well done. They look great especially against the blue sky. TFS.
