Hello Adrian,
Beautiful coloured photo of this Merganser pair. Great clarity. Nice sharpness, details and POV.

Hola Adrian

Gracias por tu comentario.

Bueno que decirte de estas imagenes que tienes. Los patos son unos animales muy vistosos de colores y plumas muy pulidas, a este marrón creo que no se peino por la mańana, ya que tiene las plumas de punta en la cabeza. a parte de bromas.
Una fantastica imagen y colores, como siempre.

Un saludo Antonio

Hi Adrian,

Belo registro, detalhes incríveis,

Parabéns pelo trabalho.

Ciao Adrian. Excellent DOF here with special tones contrast and amazing reflections. beautiful colours.

Lieber Adrian,
In Dänemark haben es Dir die Enten angetan! Das Merganser Weibchen hast Du hier sehr gut erwischt mit ihrer Windfrisur. Das Männchen, in eine andere Richtung schauend, ist ein wenig verwischt :-) Die Farben sind leuchtend, das Bild angenehm zu betrachten.
Einen schönen Abend und besseres Wetter als hier wünscht Dir

Hi MF Adrian,

Awesome capture of this pretty pair with excellent DOF/POV, wonderful clarity and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice night!


Hallo Adrian
sehr schönes Foto von diesem Merganser Pärchen, viele sharfe details hauptsächlich an dem Weibchen, das Wasser ist so wonderbar Blau in dem herrlichen Licht
Grüsse Jacqueline

Gran nitidez en toda la imagen, tanto del agua como del ave del primer plano; lástima que la del segundo estuviera en movimiento.
Saludos Adrian.

Ciao Adrian,
splendida cattura di questa coppia di Smergo maggiore, ottima definizione e colori naturali molto belli, bellissimi i riflessi e i movimenti d'acqua, ottimi il punto di ripresa e la composizione.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Adrian,
beautiful ducks swimming on lovely blue waters. You shwed it beautifully in good colours and details.
The ripples make your composition very artistic too.

Hello Adrian! Hahaha! Good one, it looks like it! Very good shot, well composed. The shutter speed was maybe a little bit too slow but all the rest is very very good, the reflections in the water are fantastic, well done my friend!


Namaste Adrian,
on patrol! Good naming. Great capture of those two swans with nice point of view. Great light and sharpness. Very well done. Tfs.

Hello Adrian
merci pour ce couple, qui semble nous offrir un ballet.
Ils sont fier allure

Hi Adrian
Nice capture of this Goosander (mergus merganser) couple. The blue reflection from the water is a nice contrast to their plumage. POV, details and composition is good.

Hej Adrian!
I hope you enjoyed your trip up north in spite of the snow and cold! You'll have to time it better next time and come in the summer! :-)
You certainly got a nice shot of this Gooander pair showing them both nicely in profile. Great focus and beautiful natural colours. Very well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Buna Adrian.
Interesanta pereche!
O poza foarte frumoasa.
Paste fericit si cu multe bucurii.Alin.

Hi Adrian,

Nice colors, plenty of details on the focused specimen (the female). The male's a little blurred, probably the shutter speed (1/125) wasn't short enough for a swimming bird - but honestly speaking it isn't disturbing or at least not too much. Which I must call a compositional mistake is their pose compared to each other: the female hides a bit of the male. Unfortunately You delayed a few seconds so You failed the moment with having both ducks on the photo without hiding each other.

Except for this mistake a great pic, even the small waves are well seen, and the "hairstyle" of the Lady Duck is something amazing and may be checked only in punk rock clubs. :)

Have a great Easter, friendly regards, László

Bonjour Adrian.

Magnifique prise de vue de ces deux oiseaux en promenade. Trčs belle netteté et couleurs de celui du premier plan. Le second, au deuxičme plan me semble légčrement moins net, en particulier, au niveau de la tęte. Belle couleur du plan d'eau et bonne saisie du mouvement.

Une belle photographie.



Hi Adrian,

The capture of the riple on the water is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the ducks. The first duck is sharp, the second one some parts are blurry. Using a faster exposure speed (1/500 seconds) would have prevented that. The light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Adrain
great capture of very beautiful couple of Margansers. splendid colors and exposure. great sharp focus and composition. Title is very good and symbolized them very well. thanks for sharing, have a nice weekend
