Robert G.
Raising the bar again! Yes low rates on good pics , needs to be delt with , Ive had my fair share of them, I dont think it looks good for anyone to have a shot with low ratings on them , when they are 6 or 7 in quality. They should be removed by a moderator. Congrats on a Masterpiece Miguel! Robert

Marc Adamus
Miguel, your passion for the photography of avian species shows through in every aspect of this image. In fact, this is one of the very best images I've ever seen, in any genre of photography. This is a capture of nature and the cycle of life as telling as any I've ever layed eyes on. There is no one I've ever known or ever heard of that works harder to capture birds of all kinds at the perfect moment like you do, and you are rewarded time and time again with world-class exceptional images that define your subjects. This is surely one of the best avian images ever captured, as are several in your vast portfolios. It is absolutely flawless. I can't understand why you would subject the image to silly, meaningless numeric ratings when you, I and everyone who sees this masterpeice knows already how good it is. Anyone who could rate this as average, is suffering from incredible jealosy and acting selfishly and immaturely. So, congrats on another fabulous addition to what I already consider my favorite avian collection. Best wishes in the pursuit of nature and the decisive moment. Marc

Kah Kit Yoong
On further inspection I can see one fault, the blown highlights on the left side of the bird and fish. Doesn't change the original rating of 7/7 though but nobody else has been able to point out any negatives.

Timo Hartikainen
This is a great nature photo. Could you provide some additional information how did you managed to get this shot? Is this a natural thing, these birds catch their food this way? Or was that a dead fish floating on the water?

Barbara D
Stunning This is jaw dropping fabulous!! Unbelievable!!!

John Paul C
4/4 Well done Miguel. I hope you are very happy with this photo. The sharpness and timing leave nothing to be desired. Your finger, equipment and eyes complement eachother well. I can't belive someone gave you 4/4 for this shot. They must have been nude fans. Ah well, I give you 7/7. I would however, love to have seen the full span of the wings. That's not reason enough for me to deduct anything from the 7/7 though. Thanks for sharing.

David Shelby
This is a exceptional photograph with beautiful full-color, and fantastic sharpness, with perceptibly in stop action. Congratulations!

P. Simorgh
the 4/4 rating is ridiculous... 7/7

Stephan Dietrich
WOW! Absolute Perfection ... 10/10 Miguel: It does not get much better than this. Absolutely amazing capture! This has a 3D effect as well. Ditto to what Marc Adamus stated as well. An award winning image.

Jim Kerr
What timing this must have taken......Jim

Leanna Weber
Wow!! This is an amazing shot. Best pic Ive seen in a long time. So much action. Crisp, clear, great light...Wow!

Paul Bertrand
Thanks First of all, thanks for sharing this with us.... I can t believe someome would give a 5 or even a 6 to this photo. I also can t immagine how long you must have been waiting and working to get shoots like this one. It s breathtaking on every aspect. A true masterpiece in nature photography Thank you

Robert Semnic
OUTSTANDING. INTERESTING how fish expression is so calm. I wonder about your position during shoting

S. Corley
Best I've seen I have seen many images of eagles pulling fish out of the water over the years to the point where I've grown bored with the concept. Then I came across this one and I have to say you certainly have out done your-self. Good Job! Stephen Corley www.nicelightimages.com

gee raj

Olivier SIMON
A dream I spent hours inside a blind to try to capture this kind of scene. This pic is what i'm dreaming to do right now. Bravo i admire your work Olivier

very good... this is my blog thank you http://www.raimondomarchesin.it/blog/

Phil Armitage
What is there to add... this is my favorite image in Miguel's outstanding portfolio and one of the best wildlife shots I've seen. The framing (or cropping as the case may be), technical perfection and immediacy of the moment combine here to create something special.

César Ruiz
Magnifica!

Jeffrey Schwartz
"The Decisive Moment" You have captured the essence of what Cartier-Bresson termed, "The Decisive Moment" Congratulations!!!

Jens Christoffersen
Waaauuuu "The Decisive Moment" 7/7

Gilles Chercuitte
Fantastic! Surely your best shot of all. I like the fact that the catch is so prominent in the frame with great form.

Sinh Nhut Nguyen
Amazing shot, great detail and sharpness. I don't know why somebody gave you a 4/4, must be too zealous I guess, again amazing shot ! 7/7

Mary White
Wow! This shot is so incredible! A split second in time, captured perfect!

Grayham Allott
Fishing Miguel.... this is the most stunning shot I have seen of this type of action, and there are many out there of rapters catching fish. What adds to the impact is the way you have cropped it so tightly whilst maintaining total action. The clarity and colour is superb. Well done and thanks for sharing. Regards

Ann Dream
comment damn thats really nice, love it

Helen Rattray
Stunning photo!!

Thank you and enjoy!

Ken Papai
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Very nice shot Miguel. Perfect timing on the capture and an ultra sharp image. This would look so nice printed large and then framed on the wall. Bravo! all the way.

Will King
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa This photo hands down, is the best wildlife photo I have ever viewed on this site or any where else for that matter. Very well done. Miguel, would you be willing to share how much post processing sharpening you did on this shot?

randy douglas
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa The moment captured here (and the way it was captured, whith the highlights and spread of the water droplets and depth of field) is so good it looks fake, but it's not.

Dave Lamb
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa I know we are supposed to say what we like about the shot, and dislike. There is nothing I don't absolutely love about this picture. The timing is impeccable, and the sharpness is stunning. One of, if not the best nature shot I've seen on this site. I can feel the water spray! 7/7

M.M. Meehan
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Now this is a WOW. There is action, tension, just the right amount of motion blur. The sparkling water drops against the darker background put us right in the middle of the capture of the fish. Perfect DOF. I see the tiny red water drop and wonder if that is a prism type of light reflection in the drop. There is just sooooooo much detail and yet the main subject is not diminished. I had to visit your page, and so saw your magazine cover photos. Congratulations on the publications. Thanks for the fine example of excellent wildlife photography.

Kim Slonaker
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa It's all been said - just perfect timing and perfect shot. It's so detailed it looks like a drawing. Very well done and I'm jealous!

Stephen Penland
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa There is so much action in this photo, yet the timing and sharpness are perfect....leaves me shaking my head at the skill involved to bring it all together.

J. Harrington USA (Massachusetts)
Fishing by Miguel Lasa I like the shot but it's cropped a bit too tight. I would have liked to see more of the wings, splash etc. Maybe post an uncropped version?

Michael Seewald
No extra space thank you No, you would definitely not want to show more of the wings, as by showing more you would lose the dynamic of where both of the eyes end up in the piece, in the vertices of the rule of thirds. The balance is superb, and by adding more space that would center both sets of eyes towards the middle, and that my friend is not a good thing.

Sac Bee
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Wow, terribly sharp image. I love the details captured in this shot, perfect timing, perfect exposure.

Steve Marcantonio
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Am I the only one wondering how the bird is managing to hold the fish when the claws are merely resting on it's skin and not penetrating at all?

Christopher Gervais
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Steve, Those claws are like needles, piercing the flesh from the side not visible. Absolutely outstanding. Love the crop. so jealous...so jealous...

Bill Tate
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Please don't get me wrong, but I want more. What's the opposite of crop? I don't know if this image has been cropped, but I suspect it has been. I would like it with a bit more of that wonderful turbulent water at the bottom and a little more wing at the top. Never-the-less, this photograph is the type of thing that all of us want to achieve at least once in ouur lives. Absolutely marvelous. You talk about your WOW factor, This has a WOW POW factor. Did I just make a pun? Sorry. Willie the Cropper

Walter Tatulinski
One Heck of an Explosively Dynamic... depiction of the struggle for life. Miguel, this is Great !

Several comments have been directed towards the crop of this photograph. For me, I like it the way it is. Regards.

Mahgol Amin
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Miguel I do not understand too much of photography but the most powerful point in this picture is fish's eye. great. It seems like they are both talking with you and looking to you in a way trying to say: "Why are you shocked? this is a part of our lives and we both accept and like it!" Good luck

jano lukac
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa The composition and skill of the photographer are magnificent. To critique, I would say the feathers on the head near the eye appear blown out, and the web presentation appears slightly over sharpened.

John Drescher
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa The subjects are separated from the background nicely, The whole photo screams action and it's clear. Who can critique a nature shot like this one, which is more about capturing an event that'll never happen again! Nice job.

Carolina Aravena
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Nice shot. I don't know if you croped the image or what we see is what you capture from your lens. I would like it even better if I could see the wings. Great shot, no blurr at all.

Mary Ball
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Moderator Note: The Photo of the Week is a serious critique forum. Please address the strengths and weaknesses of the image rather than short congratulatory comments ;-) Take a look at the Forum Guidelines which are linked in the Photograph of the Week Link on Photo.net's home page.

Jayme Hall - Bardstown, KY
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa I love the diagonal composition created by the wing (exiting the frame in the upper right) & the eyes of both the bird & the fish & ends with the water splash in the lower left. I also like the amazing clarity of both eyes. But, one thing that keeps drawing my eyes away from the subjects is the little "flare", of what I assume is a water droplet, in the upper left outer quadrant. As minuscule as it is, I can't block it out. I think it detracts from the perfectly timed capture.

noah mcl
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa While this might be a good nature shot, I would not give it a very high rating for originality. There are (and have been) thousands of shots of birds pulling fish out of water, and I cannot really tell what makes this original. Yes, the bird is in perfect focus and there is water frozen in motion, but that has been done before. One may argue that any subject has been done to such a point as to render it inherently unoriginal. Female nudes are a perfect example: How many different ways can one take a picture of a woman? The answer is an infinite amount; the complexity of the human body in combination with the myriad of possibilities of lighting and composition mean that it is close to impossible to exhaust this category. With the above picture, the photographer is limited by his static position and the predictability of the bird. On the other hand, 99.9999% of the nudes being made today are unoriginal. For a bird picture to be original, it would have to be something no one has every seen and few have imagined. i am curious to know what exactly makes this photo original.

Kaushik Ramakrishnan
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa i agree with noah... i do not find it as stunningly original... although given the time constraints of such shots i doubt the photographer can do much about originality... one more thing that bothers me about this shot is the sheer amount of water in the air... im frankly not a fan of this much sharply focussed water... it makes the image (very) chaotic and since they appear so sharp they (imho) dont add to the motion/speed/action that the rest of the picture is trying to convey... in conclusion, i am not particularly awed by this photo, however it is definitely accurate in its representation of nature...

Erik Adams
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa At first, I also thought the crop was too tight. But this photograph is really about dramatic angles and getting in tightly on the action. Being close up also emphasizes the texture of the water. It almost looks like it's coming out of the plane of the photograph. The background does have a couple of distracting elements, which should be toned down.

Phineas Tarbolde
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa It would have been nice if the full majestic breadth of the wingspan was caught on film --errr, i mean --- CCD/CMOS rather than having the wings "clipped". still an impressive shot.

Miguel Lasa
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Phineas , not sure about the filter in ps you are talking , postprocessing included levels , and contrast adjustments.

Byron Lawrence
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa this is a photograph that tells a story! .. to see a picture of something like this really doesn't do it justice.. but this comes close! I like the hopeless look of the fish! and even though it is a fish it reminds me of this.... Thus said the hawk to the nightingale with speckled neck, while he carried her high up among the clouds, gripped fast in his talons, and she, pierced by his crooked talons, cried pitifully. To her he spoke disdainfully: `Miserable thing, why do you cry out? One far stronger than you now holds you fast, and you must go wherever I take you, songstress as you are. And if I please I will make my meal of you, or let you go. He is a fool who tries to withstand the stronger, for he does not get the mastery and suffers pain besides his shame.' So said the swiftly flying hawk, the long- winged bird. - Hesiod maybe?

Paula Grenside
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Not a fan of birds and fish shots, but this is remarkable for the perfect timing that frames an incredible moment in the cycle of life. Congratulations on this capture and its rendering.

John Marsden
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa This is a great capture. But is it perfect 7/7? Aesthetics in wildlife photography I think is always an oxymoron. You have to work with what ever the animals happen to be doing and where they are doing. Often with only fleeting nano seconds to capture an image and often with less than perfect backgrounds etc. Here the long lens has thrown the background out of focus and make the subject sing out at us. (The bright orange/yellow highlight on the left I would remove - it detracts from the subject and does not alter the meaning of the picture in any way.) The ultimate framing for me is just a fraction too tight at the bottom - the curve of the fish is interacting with the photo frame rather than with the water it has been stolen from. The splash of water on the bottom left is coming out of the picture frame not the lake /river itself. The dramatic diagonal of bird wing-body leads the eye beautifully to the fish, this with the implied movement to the right and frothing water gives the image its impact. Spending days in a bird hide to get good images sounds like hell on earth but I suppose you get chance to meditate and relax. The efforts that one has to go through to capture an image should not be factored into a criticism of the image. It does count though in appreciation of the photographers effort, but just because you feel you couldn?t do that doesn?t mean you should be less critical of the photo produced and presented.

D P
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Brilliant! I only see strengths here. Few of us will ever combine light, depth of field, composition and timing in such an awe inspiring image.

david thrower
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Fantastic image - well done. The only thing that bothers me is that the claws dont appear to penetrate the fish at all - they just seem to rest on the side on the fish. Is that normal for such a violent natural event.

Denis Dobardzic
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa man, this is AMAZING photo. excellent capture, colors, sharpness and everything. just great photo

Randy Lorance
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Amazing work. Your capture of the "capture"! Fine detail from the bird's eye to the fish's spots. I don't feel that the parts of wings out of frame particularly detract, the tight frame brings the action right to you, almost expect to feel the water drops hit my face.

Janet Berg
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Either this is a perfect shot or it is manipulated and I can't decide which. There's something about that fish.

Landrum Kelly
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa I'm trying to enjoy this, but I find myself looking at this from the fish's point of view. Sorry, Miguel. It's a great shot, one of the best I have seen of this type of photography. --Lannie

Marcelo Albuquerque
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Amazing shot. Very sharp and it manages to catch the bird and the fish in a perfect moment. There have been other similar shots but these are not very easy to come across. As for the water, I like the effect of the waves and splashes below the fish. It conveys motion very well. I can't say the same about the almost static drops of water in the upper part of the image. They are very distracting. But overall this is a great shot. Congratulations.

Miguel Lorenzo Posada
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa I think that the photo it?s more than a bird fishing. Perfect focus. Perfect moment. Very intersting composition. M.Lorenzo

John Wright
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Wow. This is the sort of action photo that wildlife/nature photographers dream of capturing. It takes a lot of hard work and patience, and practice (there is a reason I mostly photograph plants)! Perfect timing, perfect sharpness.

Aida Servi
Maravillosa Enhorabuena Miguel. Una foto espectacular ;) Aida Servi

Rajesh Patel
Response to Fishing by Miguel Lasa Miguel its an AmAzInG shot...good focus, i don't know more about photography... The bird timing was good in catching the fish & your timing was best that you capture bird catching the fish..... simply brilliant..
