Dear colleagues from TN, after several days of absence back today with a new picture.

I did a picture in Lainzer Tiergarten.
I hope you will like.
I wish you all a wonderful week,

The Lainzer Tiergarten is a 24.50 km² (6,054-acre) wildlife preserve in the southwest corner of Vienna, Austria, 80% of it being covered in woodland. It dates back to 1561, when Ferdinand I of Austria created it as a fenced-in hunting ground for his family to use. Since 1919, it has been open to the public. Its name consists of its location by the Lainz district of Vienna's 13th District, and Tiergarten, which means zoo (literally, "animal garden").

The Lainzer Tiergarten was created by Emperor Ferdinand I in 1561, when the area was fenced off by a wooden fence, to allow for a private hunting ground. In 1781, the wooden fence was replaced by a stone wall. After the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the hunting grounds became a public nature preserve, and have remained so ever since, with the exception of the time period of 1940 to 1955, when the entire grounds were closed. An admission fee existed until 1973, after which the preserve became accessible for free.

Hello Adrian, my neighbour.

You show us a very fine capture.
I like the composition very much, the animals combined with the surrounding.
Colors are great.
Perhaps a small critical point, the horizon stands not entirely right.
Well done and have an nice evening.

Gr. Hans

Hi Adrian

Lovely view of this pair of deer. The deer give a good idea of the scale of the fallen tree.

Best wishes


Hi Adrian
First class picture....I like the composition....TFS.

Hi Adrian,
Good capture of this part of the wildlife reserve.
I like the way you composed the picture to let us see some of the landscape, as well as the inclusion of the two animals.
Thanks a lot for share it,

Hi Adrian,

I think the little one is staring at the antlers and thinking how wonderful they are. A wonderful snowy setting with the white against the dark trees in the background and the uprooted tree. I wish I had known of this Tiergarten when I was in Vienna!

HellO Adrian,
A fine capture of a stag and hind standing close to what must have been a huge tree before it fell, taken with fine sharpness and good exposure in the snow. Pleasing composition too but it is a pity the enclosure fence is seen in the BG.
Thanks and best wishes,

Ciao Adrian. Great capture in very good details and chromatic contrast. Excellente space's management.


Salut Adrian.
Grozava si foarte buna captura.Interesant moment.
O zi frumoasa.Alin.

Hello Adrian,
Hope you'll be doing fine and there will be sunshine somewhere there. This is a wonderful scene of a frigid winter landscape with these deer perhaps resting for a while in the open. Your note is as good as is this fine photo. You have conveyed to us a piece of the history of your part of Europe.Thanks a lot for sharing this effort with us....take care...warmest regards/Abid

Ciao Adrian, lovely family scene in a wonderful winter view, splendid composition, beautiful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Asta e o captura care ma face sa ma simt acasa!
Perfect capturat cuplul de lopatar!
E mai bine sa te uiti la animale prin lentila aparatului decat prin luneta armei!

Hello Adrian,

A great capture with lovely natural colors, details & wintry setting. Well taken & presented. TFS & best wishes.

Bonita imagen la que nos muestras y buena explicación la que nos das Adrian.

Hi Adraia,

an nice winterimage from these deers with good pov and natural colours.


Hallo, mein Freund Adrian,
Gute Aufnahme und sehr interesantliche Note. Meine Komplimenten! Good contrast between white snow and animals.
Warm greetings from Ural,

Dear Adrian
I like the image very much. It has a sensitivity and almost pureness that surrounds it, I think it must be the white snow that makes me experience this feelings looking at this scenery. The white snow looks like heaps and heaps of whipped icing sugar and in contrast with the brown colour of the buck's fur it is a lovely picture. In my personal opinion a PPP – Pretty, perfect, picture and a sheer delight to look at. A very peaceful and serene moment captured. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Lieber Adrian,
Charmante winterliche Szene, die Du hier präsentierst. Das Bild ist schön gestaltet, allerdings ist nach TN-Regeln empfohlen, Bilder ohne Gehege zu zeigen. Ich dachte, das Bild könnte verschwinden.. Der umgefallene Baum strukturiert diese Natur-Szene gut.
Was facebok betrifft möchte ich lieber nicht beitreten.
Herzlich grüsst und wünscht dir ein schönes Wochenende

Hello Adrian,
A beautiful winter scene where you show the fine stag showing off its large antlers to the female (and to us!). I think they feel safe behind the large snow-covered log on the ground. Great focus and details and beautiful natural colours. A pleasing composition too!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
