[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Flying mallards are are good exercise for panning shots, as they often go in predictably, straight lines, and do it quite fast!

wow, great shot... Greeting for Turkey...

Great! You've pulled off the pan in "flying colors"! The emerald green is brilliant. Nice light, composition, uncluttered background. Bravo!

superb inflight shot, dan! :-)
terrific flying pose of the male mallard showing us his underneath against a great blurred bg.
well done & take care, thor.

Hi Dan,

Well captured inflight,with awsome colors and details,well panned and TFS,


hi dan,
very nice shot of the bird in motion, well composed shot, well saturated colours,
tfs & regards

bonjour dan
excercice de haut vol!!
particulierement bien reussi,l'oiseau est poarfaitement figé.peu etre qu'une vitesse moindre et plus de profondeur aurait donné plus de details mais dans l'ensemble c'est tres bien.

Nice action shot, Dan!

Good flight shot. The colors and composition are well taken as well. could be a tad sharper in my taste but this is good too.
