Hi Luciano,
Spectacular frontal PoV, probably taken from a ditch. :-) Very sweet lights, you again used the flash with sense, and the golden color tones are fantastic as sharpness itself (fantastic details). Composition's breathtaking, DoF is marvellous - abssolutely the photo of the day for me. Bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Daniel,
This species is also living on the coastal cliffs of Ireland, and although I never yet managed to photograph them, I see it's quite a difficult job due to the black and white plumage, which is quite easy to either over- or underexpose. Your image became a tad overexposed on some white parts, however, the composition's good and the blue of the background is also spectacular. Good sharpness as well. I hope to see you more often here on TN, with such good photos as this one.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Asbed,
Unique shot. It tells me an entire story about the mallard, which flies from the aerial light to the darkness of the ground level - at least the luminosity on the image decreases from right to left, which is also the direction of the mallard's flight. Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect pose, timing, usage of light and as mentioned, breathtaking composition. Hats off for you!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hola Pedro,
Nicely composed photo, the two butterflies, forming a semi-diagonal line, are complementing each other very well. Great wing textures and details on both, nice lights and colors. Probably, although this is just a personal opinion you probably disagree with, the background isn't mish-mashed enough, instead of f/11 5.6 or so would do, and the b-fly at the right's a little too closed to the edge of the frame. Otherwise a lovely capture.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi neighbour :-)
Spectacular shot. I don't know, what f-stop you used, but the flat background's very well separated from the conspicuous duck. Fantastic sharpness, pose, composition and lovely blue feathers. Congratulations!

Well captured this 'Comma' butterfly. Good details and I like its big eyes. Credit goes to you mainly for capturing it in its world; I mean low ground level POV is perfect here.

Not sure about ID, doesn't look like high altitude clouds. Exposure looks nice but lack of composition, Although the shape of cloud looks interesting.

Hello Musa Sahaab,
Something interesting! Well framed. Although DOF isn't stunning, but looks nice. Even can see stars, I think. Don't know why didn't you use DSLR toy here!

Foreground looks soft which I don't like in landscape.
