Looks like a spacecraft. A most convincing action capture.

Fabulous photo. The background is blown out and that hurts the overall impact a bit. But it's still among my top picks.

The momment of capture is GREAT! But the background is distubing me littel. Looks like some green/yellow tone that should not be there and littel to overexpouserd at the end of the water:(

It's a pity about the burnt out area, but I realise how little time you probably had to take this. Good shot.

too white washed toward the top

Very nice capture, but the background is too blown out and really detracts from the main subject.

Nice capture, the lighting is unfortunate though. Doesn't show enough detail.

Nicely captured. I would have preferred to see the bird a little less underexposed though, even if it meant washing out most of the ripples on the water.

The water in the upper left is too bright, causing you to lose detail in the bird. Makes me want my sunglasses. I also don't care for the fact that his feet are cut off. Otherwise, it's a good capture, and I like the sense of motion and immediacy that this gives me.

Nicely done. Must have been tough getting exposure right for the bird with that background!

Nice capture. Focus a little off for my taste?..Good luck
