Hello Jacek - The side light on the falconer's face and hand is really lovely here, revealing the concentration and connection with the bird very well. Your use of DOF is also excellent with the deep green forest providing a soft green BG against which the subject stands out perfectly. A very good image, I'm surprised you didn't get more reaction. Best regards Rosemary

Cześć Jacku, dobrze uchwycona dynamiczna scena. Ostrość tam gdzie trzeba, ładnie bohaterzy rozmieszczeni w kadrze, stonowane tło. Podoba się, pozdrawiam.

The moment was well timed here as you managed to capture the bird in flight and the falconers expression wonderfully. I love the slight motion blur on the wings of the falcon and the way that the wings are sort of framing the person in the composition, the subtle colours are also nice.

Piekna praca. Swietne wykonanie, uchwycic ten moment nie bylo zapewne latwe. Bardzo dobra ostrosc i glebia obrazu. Mysle ze uchwyciles jastrzebia ja wystartowal z reki dziewczyny, gdyby przymierzal sie do ladowania nozki mial by wystwione . A moze sie myle.

Wow, what a photo! You did very well to capture it in this moment and so sharply. Just the right amount of blurring on the tips of the wings. And even the falconer releasing it is superbly captured, in such a dynamic pose and the with the light on her face. A really great photo that deserves much more recognition from members. Thanks a lot for this pleasure!

A difficult image but you have it right. The sharpness is perfect, the wing blur supportive of the movement, and the muted background adds all the depth. Congrats.

Fine piece of work, Jacek. The sharpness on the woman is just splendid, yet the bird is captured expertly too! Quite like the motion blur on the wings. Dark green backdrop is perfect. Very good work, not an easy shot to pull off! Congratulations.
