Congratulations to louie champan for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners


I say challenge due to the KF always being a challenge for me, a challenge to find where they most frequently are, a challenge find a good position from which to shoot and finally a challenge to get a few decent shots.

Some super moments Louie. I like the photos with the fish yet for me the third has the most detail in the neck and it's what I find most challenging about them so I call that out as well. The last is a nice flight photo

Wonderful set Louie.

I think the KFs are a universal challenge for us in this forum, Louie. However, these are absolutely gorgeous portraits where you overcame all the obstacles and created some stunning portraits! These are a treat to see.

Congratulations!

Wow Louie, these are amazing. Love the first shoot the most, but all are great. These birds are fast and low flying. hard to capture in flight.
