Hi Pierre,
Beautiful photo, taken from a very spectacular PoV. Very pleasant composition, perfect exposure, lights and sharpness - maybe the white balance is a little out of tune as small (but really small) blue / cyan overcast may be observed, but the semi-diagonal composition is so conspicuous that it's able to sell the image alone. I don't know how I was able to overlook this stunning image in your gallery. Great image, bravo!
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hi Luciano,
The sky is washed out and the crop isn't the best either (see the halfly cropped giraffes at right), however, full credit for the funny scene as it really seemed like only one giraffe! :-) Not your best picture technically, but loving fun so much I can only say: well done Signor! :-)

Hi Anne,
Nice to see spring arrived to the continental Europe as well. Here in Ireland we already have some daffodils in bloom now (and more to come every day), but in our oceanic climate winters are rather mild. Nice photo, beautiful lights, ssharpness and pleasant composition. Tfs.

Hi Sri,
The photo's second to none, the female is as pretty on your photo as the male, you captured both of them in an artistic way. Fantastic diagonal composition with perfect technicality. But let me mention one misspelling in the note: please amend Lanuis to Lanius. Otherwise yes, an image to be absolutely proud of. Bravo.

Hi Marius,
It's always great to browse in your gallery, among many summer photos. This is a valuable piece also, great pose, composition and technicality, with true summer color tones. Lovely image, thanks!

Ciao Silvio,
Nice composition, great sharpness and depth - a little too bright maybe? At least on my laptop it is, although a perfect shot otherwise.
Surprisingly underrated by the colleagues.

Hi Asbed,
Probably oversaturated a little colorwise, but the funny composition itself immediately deserves the highest credit. :-) Seems like a couple who just looks out of a pool, into another one, which is located higher. :-) Absolutely the photo of the day for me. Bravo!

Hi Sri.
I like this photo very much, as your 'model' is quite similar to our Otis tarda, which is strictly protected by the law in my home country, Hungary. Probably the lights were not the best, but the photo's very sharp, the composition's great, details are awesome. Absolutely lovely pic, which gives something special to the viewer. Well done!

Hi Stone,
The details on the moth are nice, such as exposure, but I'd prefer tighter crop at the right and the bottom as the background's a little lacking function here. Nevertheless, a good image.

Hi Ram,
This is gorgeous. Great off-centered compo, good sharpness, nice colors and this time the exposure is perfect, too. Even there was a wire (?) at the bottom, very closed to your lens, a pleasant photo. Congratulations!

Nicely composed photo with good sharpness, but overexposed and the white balance settings weren't correct as there's cyan overcast on the pic.

Hi Ishi,
Absolutely gorgeous exposure - before checking the exif I didn't think you used flash. Nice composition, and the blue flowers make great contrast with the pale buff in the background. WS photo (the desert) is excellent, too. Valuable post, thanks!

Hi Pierre,
The very best for you, too. Unfortunately this image is not on the high level we used to get from you, the robin's too small in the frame, not spectacular enough, while the background's very noisy. Probably you overcropped the photo?

Hi Luciano,
Nicely composed shot, and it's very interesting to see our well-known little egret in black. :-) Seriously, we, trekkers can't be grateful enough for you to share photos from your trips and travels, and we may be a bit familiar with species we never heard about before. Perfect exposure, great details on the black plumage. Excellent photo, thanks and congratulations!

Hi Jacqueline,
Absolutely fantastic image (I don't agree with your note about the quality, just the opposite), one of your best ones, I should say. Perfect action shot at the same time as well, not only a nice telemacro. Great lights, colors, quite dynamic photo, and the smooth background is absolutely noise-free. Exceptional shot. Hats off!

Hi Sri,
This beautiful pic has really worth every effort - even you had to wait a lot in the drizzling spray. In spite of the difficult light conditions perfect exposure and spectacular colors. Sharpness is perfect as always and the composition's pleasant. Pretty, elegant image. Bravo!

Hi Silvio,
Nice image, perfect usage of the technique, and the composition's pleasing, too. It's not your fault the insect and the scene weren't too spectacular color-wise. Probably in b/w the photo would be more outstanding?
Kind regards, László
