    Nice take off of this guy. Like the water drops trailing from the feet. The green background compliments the bird quite well.

    This ticks all the boxes for me!
    Clean BG, nice light, sharp and great wing position. The curve of the water droplets is really fun.
    Well done,
    Gail

    Great take-off against beautiful green background. Good timing.

    I like the take off pose, the downward wing position and the trailing water. Good head angle as well. On the 5k imac the image does not look tack sharp. Also I think it is a bit dark and would increase the exposure.

    I love the take off pose and curved line of water drops. The far wing is excellent. The front one is OK, but I am not crazy how it gets lost as it merges with the legs and tail feathers. Still a pretty cool image, your timing was on!
