~ The Take Off | Greater Coucal ~
It will be better if I got a green blurry background with this bird. But everything not remains in the control of a photographer. So, sorry for that concrete wall... But overall I think I got a good frame to see...
Here is the Coucal.
~ Enjoy It ~

delightful,delicate and at the same time so expressive capture!
I don´t think you have to apologize for the wall.I think it makes really amazing background for the scene and it´s definitely something different from what we used to see as a background for this kind of shots.
Besides it makes the color scheme of the image so lovely and harmonized.
Have a nice day

fascinating shot this. This bird has a phoenix-like feel about it, like something out of Harry Potter. I think it is the setting with the brick wall bg adding to the effect. It is a beautiful capture, and I like the bg too! It looks like the bird is just floating in the air. Wonderful!

Nice result, with a good focus on the bird, interesting graphical wall on the BG, nice dynamic movement well taken.

This bird cleverly captured mid-flight sits well against the slightly blurred brick wall. The lines in the plumage make a good contrast with those offered by the wall. Very good rendering of the plumage.

Namaste mon ami. Cette prise en plein vol est fantastique. L'oiseau est d'une superbe netteté grance à ce temps d'exposition de 1/640e de sec. J'aime beaucoup l'arrière plan de briques dans un beau flou.

Une belle réussite de la prise de l'oiseau en plein vol sur un fond flouté, netteté et couleurs au top, bravo

The brick wall was actually what captured my attention. Colour wise it is just perfect and the rectangular pattern is very interesting too, probably nicer than blurred green. The bird takes off very elegantly with its spread wings catching the warm light from the sun.

It is a glorious flight with the colorful wings wide open. As a viewer, I think the background, with its harmonized rectangles, suits very well.
Great clarity. I like the angle of flight you have chosen.

I like very much how you captured this bird with its wings wide open, they are lovely and interesting to observe. Your composition is excellent, the bird is well placed, flying from the bottom right corner across the frame towards the upper left. I find the backdrop very intriguing. Its homogeneity is not disturbing, the tonal harmony provided is fine. There's a superb contrast between the lightness and elegance of the flying bird and the solidity and rigidness of the wall. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

hello subhendu. why, this brick wall is much more effective than a green backdrop, imho. cause, there is a stunning effect coming by: "a tropical bird lost in an urban environment". and that makes this original.
ps: i like your signature, watermark is well hidden, much better :)

Cette prise de vue en plein vol de ce magnifique oiseau est très belle. Le mur de briques en arrière plan ne me dérange pas.
