Bonjour Gérard,
An excellent capture of a pair of Yellow-billed Storks. Both are shown from a fine POV with good sharpness and natural colours against a contrasting natural BG in good lighting.
Merci et bon dimanche,
A bientôt,
Ivan

Hello Gerard,
Very nice photo of these Yellow-billed Storks in beautiful natural colours and nice sharpness. Taken from a very good POV. Pleasing DOF.
Regards,
Peter

Quite the nice duo. I have been seeing a few more posted. I feel it is a sign of both good and bad to come. See the birds....for they do not worry, yet retain all of their beauty which your eyes catch well.

Hi Gerard,

Maciek

hello Gerard
very nice compo with great details and beautiful colours
great shot
greeting lou

Good image of this Mycteria ibis, Gerard. I love the clean space around the birds and their fantastic natural habitat! Bravo! The use of 1/100 seems a bit optimistic for a handheld lens in my opinion and as a result some minor camera shake is visible. Good work never the less!

OLá Gerard, muito boa foto de qualidade exelente e composição ótima, parabéns por esta bela imagem.

Bonjour Gerard,

An awesome capture of these two lovely storks, with fine sharpness and deep DOF. The soft green background works well. I like the low POV too that very effective.
TFS and have a nice new week!

Bonjour Gérard,
Une belle capture, mais personnellement, j'aurais réduit l'ouverture pour diminuer la PDC et diluer l'arrière plan, peu intéressant, et augmenté la vitesse pour améliorer la netteté sur les cigognes
Merci pour ta note car grace a ce site j'ai appris que ces storks étaient aussi classifiées comme "ibis"
Cordialement
Albert

Hello Gerard,
the two big birds are caught in good scenery. The lively blue water add beauty to the composition. Very special view with good lighting making the surroundings so sharp and clear.
