BTW where is this ?
Your photo is fantastic it looks like an oil painting and the first attempt you deserve a credit. kaz
Nice one Chris! Lots going on here.
How did the other 835 shots come out then?
That's super, all the action captured.

Well done for the first time Chris never done out like this so difficult to comment but if you enjoyed it that is what maters
Superb shot well Done!!!
Paddy...taken on the Farne Islands,Northumberland
Goggz...lots of fuzzy feathers and empty skies
Nice one Chris! Lovely to meet you.
Hey Chris...well done you,a good capture there coming straight out of the screen.A real interesting little group with plenty of action too.I do like the way you have kept in the Puffin peeping over the top of the rocks,many would have 'removed' him methinks
No such thing as empty skies....just 'in flight shots '..lol
Well done carting that hookin' great lens around all day,it payed off !
Thanks Janet...brill weekend and thanks everso for your help...still recovering from that b**y lens
Good to meet you too Betty ....
Way better than anything I got from my visit there 10 years ago, but wouldn't have minded that lens
Theres a touch of humour in this wonderful image, well seen and captured.
A fantastic first of it's kind shot Chris. One of my dreams to photograph Puffins . Such a wonderful different image including the one starting to peep over . You certainly got your money's worth . xxxx
A super shot, pin sharp and great colour. Beautifully captured.
Quote: My first attempt at this type of photography
Are you sure you're not kidding us Mr Plumbe!!. Cracking shot in my book mate.
WOW...fantastic shot Chris.
yep lugging that great thing around was well worth it, great stuff
This is a stunner of a shot. Just love it. Shaun
This is a cracker Chris! Cracker Chris, mmm ..... Cracker Chris.
Yup good to see you again, John.
This is a cracking capture for your first attempt Chris. God knows what you are capable of after a few attempts.
First attempt?!! ... brillaint, fabulous timing, great colours and detail... well done indeed!
This is so good it's difficult to believe it's your first attempt. Excellent detail and precision focusing ...superb image. Andy I
A brillant first with lots going on in it.
great fun shot too! Loads of detail
A well timed shot Chris & it made me smile, hope I can do as well in July when we visit the Farne Islands
Thankyou....Hope you have a great time Glynnis
Fantastic capture Chris, love the one peeping over the rock ... and the detail throughout is excellent.
Nice sharp pic Chris,more things to practice now
This is excellent, never easy to frame on the move when you're at this focal length, very well done. The action couldn't be better here, crash landing about to happen did you take any more in the series?
All the very best
Thankyou....and yes i have a sequence Dougie
Like the details in this and certainly well timed Chris.
Well captured - Regards Richard.
great shot great detail well captured Dawn
Love it Chris, really different from the usual Puffin shots
A magnificent photograph. Well done.
Warm regards, Iain.
This is very VERY good
Thankyou...and thanks 'xinia' for your award
Brilliant AND amusing shot.
Bloody good for a first attempt what a cracking shot...jojo
Thankyou....and thanks Adam for the award
Sorry for not leaving a comment, but I discoverd I had a virus on my machine as I was typing it the other day - one major re-install later and the PC is now working again.
I like the composition of this. The bird in flight is by no means the sole focal point and infact the perimeter of its wing span kind of acts as an umberella that sign posts the eyes to whats happening below. The two puffins on the outer edges looking in opposite directionss couldn't be better, but my favorite is the 'bod' styled head popping up in the background. All superb. My only minor gripe is that for my taste there is too much sky - perhaps a slight crop might be in order.
Good to meet you Chris - I look forward to meeting you again sometime soon.
brilliant, thought you would have got an award for this one
WOW.....Great job capturing these little guys....
Excellent timing and capture, I would've thought you photograph them on a regular basis, not being your first.....Luv this!
Totally awesome image - inspiring. Sylv.
Thankyou...and thanks Adam
such a brill shot of bird interaction
Fantastic, well caught all of your puffin shots
Cracker image, Chris.
It looks like you had a lot of fun and it looks like, from this shot that, you are one of those people who can.
Just had my first visit to the Farne islands. Filled 2 cards with Puffins. None as good as this, well done. Love it. Mind you, I am a novice. Watch this space ....
