Ran into this Kingfisher yesterday. It was very far away and further access to it was impossible. I put it in the one third position and captured more of the reflection from the water below.

Beautiful shot Wkleung,

I like the unique reflection pattern in the water. I'd have brought out a little more of the frame on the left side (in the direction the bird is looking) and brought down the top a bit, but thats just me. Either way, a great shot!

beautiful shot wk7leung. the colors are well saturated. do you think you can crop a bit more? i would like to see more of the kingfisher. even though the water does have a nice pattern and makes for a pretty background, i think it overwhelms the small size of the kingfisher.

The first one was posted without any cropping. The one below is massively cropped. The shot was taken with a Swarovski fieldscope,ATS 80 HD, on a D200.Theglass is just great. Provided that youfocus properly,this monster will faithfully give you what it takes in. Again, thanks for viewing and giving comments.
