Bonjour Thomas,
Effet surprenant avec ton long temps de pose. Il en sort une image étonnante, artistique, créé par le flou des contours.
Bonne journée

oui comme tu dis ça permet de comparer
sur ta prise aussi on peu faire la comparaison, on voit nettement que ton cygne est entrain de nager vu les mouvements de l'eau , dommage que ça la rende flou mais surement pas grand chose a y faire par contre bon détail sur la patte
bonne journée et merci bien

Hi Thomas.
Very nice captured scene and composition. The reflection of the waves are perfect as well as colours and lights.

I can help you a bit later. But now I want to say that the blurriness of your picture is a result of applying too long shutter speed. F-stop must be shorter then f-number (in your case f-stop must be equal or shorter 1/86. Or use tripod (monopod). The noise is a result of post processing, I think. Increase of sharpness is often accompanied by occurrence of noise.

My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Thomas, superb swan, I like your choice of exposure time, beautiful effct of movie, wel done, ciao Silvio

Salut Thomas,
Very nice shot.Godd POV and compo.TFS.


Hi Thomas,
This can be a great shot if captured at higher shutter speed. I believe it should not be easy to take a sharp image of a moving swan at speed of 1/25 seconds. 'Grains' are also visible on water surface.
Nice aspects of this shot are PoV, composition, and timing in capturing this swan.
This is only my humble and honest opinion, hope you do not feel offended.

Hi Thomas,
You are using one of the most versatile cameras available today; going by the picture you have taken with it, you are either experimenting or are still struggling to master this camera. I wish you had written a note about it.
Anyway, keep trying if you are still figuring out the camera. If you are experimenting, then you must share your ideas.

This is your best swan picture. It is sharper than the others and the water textures and colours are great. Now if only it would turn round :)



Salut Thomas
Encore une superbe photo d'un beau cygne avec une très belle composition , de jolies couleurs et de beaux détails.
Bravo et merci...JP
