Another image from Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum yesterday.
Thanks for taking the time to look,
Great pic - nice flapping! You've really caught the movement.
Nice one love the movement in the wings
Well captured Mark! I love the expression on his face.
wow great shot i just get a blurr so well done Dawn
Well timed and captured
PERFECT timing! shame the end of the wing is cropped. Outstading image nevertheless!

Hi Kris, the cropping was something I was not sure about, there is a leaf over the end of the wing and I decided to crop that out, but here is the original version (V2), I'm still unsure which is the best.
splendid capture !
slightly prefer #1...
Very interesting capture!
Great capture. I like the tighter crop in this instance.
Excellent shot Mark, well captured
I go along with the rest the tighter crop is good
Love the movement in the wings, well captured.
Excellent action shot Mark, such wonderful motion in the wings; definitely #2 for me as it's nice to see the context and the whole wing
everyting that I'm going to say further reflects only my personal opinion and under any sircumstamces can be accepted as something more than that
"...but here is the original version (V2), I'm still unsure which is the best."
You are right Mark, the second is better and that is why:
-it gives the whole atmosphere of the nature where this bird feels at home;
-the leaf in the image (something that brings you most at the state of hesitation) tells us that you, the author, do not change the natural environment to make it look different due to your own imagination of how it will look more attractive.
-the main subject of the image dominates and nothing distracts our attention from it. You leave it for the viewer to choose where to fix their attention. There will always be someone who sees far from what you wish them to see
-proportionally it also balanced better. On the first pic the bird is too big.
Thank you for reading
No 2 for me as well, glad you said he was landing, thought for a minute he had gone mad.... Great shot.
Great image, very well caught.
And yes, I did give her the web address Mark, I hope she likes them. Got another 3 going on tomorrow.
All the best,
Excellent capture Mark No 2 for me
brillaint capture and well done
Excellent movement captured in the wings, V2 for me also Mark.
I like both renditions but edge toward #2 as it shows more of the surroundings.
excellent timed and composed images.
Thank you everyone for your comments and valuable advice on this one, they are appreciated,
2 for me a stunning shot, well done. - gary
WOW.... cant decide which one i like better cos both are soo good
