Great action shot. The composition and action are very good to me. I find the green grass a little distracting. Also the bird's eye is just a touch blurred when i compare it to the fish. this may be my screen and the size of the image, so i am not sure.   Posted: 03/16/2020 19:47:51

Perfect timing on this shot. I agree a little with Fred about the green background. I might have tried darkening it a little bit, but it is great how it is. Nicely done.   Posted: 03/30/2020 13:50:44
