    Very nice image of this colourful bird. The bird is sharp with good feather detail. I like the way that you have placed the upper part of the body against the sky so that it stands out from the tree. Some would ask for a head turn but I am ok the way it is. TFS.

    Hi Tobie very nice kingfisher and lovely colors on him. A bit more noise reduction in the blues and green BG. For me, the perch is okay its the tree it is attached to that isn't cooperating. TFS

    Nice frame of this king fisher. Like the pose on the bird just a little too tight in the frame.

    Hi Tobie. A very nice photo of a Kingfisher that I haven't seen before. Nice and sharp with good feather details/colours. It does seem quite noisy in the background areas. TFS.

    Ditto John Mack only way too tight.Can we see a JPEG that represents the full frame capture? Bird's crown and eye need to be opened up. Lastly it looks like filtered light with lots of shadows on the bird ...
