Hello Matteo !
You have captured such a great action-scene ! The bird si frozen perfectly, with pin sharp details, in an unusual but wonderful pose. I also like the soft colors, the vertical composition, the reflection on the mirror-like water. Very well done !

Hi Matteo,
Very beauticul and aesthetic action shot.
Well done!
TFS and G's,

scatto magistrale dove hai combinato
la plasticita' nel movimento delle ali
e il momento esatto della cattura del pesce...la ciliegina la straordinaria resa con il riflesso sulla superficie dell'acqua....vedo che e' stata fatta
dalle mie parti questa foto,dove alla centrale Taccani a Trezzo?
complimenti Matteo!!

Ciao young amico Matteo,

This one is truly a vivid capture with enough good focus and level of details.
Interesting also the composition that gives a nice space to continuing to fly. This is not easy capture!
Well done! Have a nice WE!


Hi Matteo
the mirror image is almost as sharp as the bird, great!
compo and exposure just perfect

Hallo Matteo
Here I can definitely say: This is a sheer delight. The fine details captured is really stunning and the pose captured is just splendid. The details of this scene and the reflection in the water is viewing pleasure and apprecition at its best. Image is presented in a most delightful manner, with care taken to details. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards

Ciao Matteo,
una straordinaria cattura per la plasticità della postura del gabbiano e il bellissimo riflesso di una limpidezza e nitidezza unica, il gabbiano sembra un uccello di facile portata, ma anche in situazioni come questa in cui si avvicina attratto dal pane non è semplice realizzare una bella fotografia, ci sei riuscito con eccezionale tempismo ed un ottima realizzazione tecnica. Bravo! (il gabbiano comune è un uccello che non ho ancora inserito nella mia galleria su TN)
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio
