Very nice!

Til hamingju Kobbi.
Á top 10 með fyrstu mynd, það er ekki lítill árangur.

Congrats, top 10 with first entry, good work. I actually thought this was gonna be a top 5 entry. The focal plane is just perfectly on the loon.

Congratulations Jakobs! I told you so! Your first entry and #9 hope to see many more.
Til hamingju Kobbi, ég vissi að þú áttir heima í þessari keppni, ekki slæm útkoma en varð smá fyrir vonbrigðum að þú skyldir ekki ná enn hærra.

Although I'm not really nuts about the placement of the subject in the photo, I think that this capture is exceptional and the focus is great. Good luck!

I smell a ribbon, I think. Lovely shot of a beautiful bird with great focus and stop motion. How did you get enough light to shoot this? My camera is grainy at high ISO and I assume you have quite a long lens to have captured this?

Wow! Pretty amazing capture, nice moment there and I love the frozen moment in time feel of it. I would have given it a 10 but I feel it´s composed a bit too tight towards the right side, I would have wanted to see the whole splash but I gave it a 9 and I don´t give out many of those. Love the sharpness and clarity of it.
