This is an amazing shot - that motion in the water whislt keeping the dipper sharp is really something. Love the lighting too. Really special

Lovely shot. I like the way the picture has a sense of depth with water behind and in front of the bird. Will be going to a stream near home and trying a fewe myself. Was out last weekend but the light wasn't good enough.

love the two different water effects...must have been difficult to capture. I'm no expert here, but do you think the focus is on the blade of grass beneath the bird?

may not be pin sharp but love the little water offshoots pinging around the bird ,another nice one of a difficult to catch bird. I saw one when doing the chicken shots but it wouldnt settle down for a good shot

What a wonderful shot - the ambience is really great - you can almost feel the cold water...

LOL....See I knew you could do it!

With the exception of it being just a tad soft Kev, which I don't think could be helped, have to say you've pretty well nailed it.....Think this is another location you'll have to show me though, just so I can show you how it should be done!......

Ade

Now putting the coat on and leaving this room as fast as possible....
