[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A picture from the camargue. This shot at the resolution TN allows is not nearly as impressive as the full resolution on. All the details in eye contact and feathers got lost. Still I wanted to upload this one. Early mornings there usually was quite a bit of activity, and one morning the wind was such that they had to take of and land in parallel to where I was standind. These birds being so big need the lift of the wind to control their flight

Ook deze is weer mooi Jeroen.
Prachtige kleuren en goede scherpte. Door de vrij kleine resolutie vallen er inderdaad nog wel eens wat details weg. Zeker bij vogels die deze vorm hebben. Maar een uitstekende foto.

great shot!

I always have admired photo of birds in flight. You may know of Celtic Ranger who I help get started in such things... it is the environment sometimes and in your case the sheer dynamics... all count and all are worthy... and as I say you have clicked at the correct time as I'm sure you know. From me a first to you so welcome my friend..I see by your crits that you are a fine participant.

Ciao Jeroen.
Gran bella foto con di questo fenicottero rosa adulto, con dei colori meravigliosi ed un’ottima nitidezza,molto bello il taglio della foto complimenti.
Ciao Marco.

Hi Jeroen,

Hello Jeroen,
I like this lovely species of bird. The image is excellent taken from a very good and nice POV. The details and colors are great. Impressive focus and razor sharp details. The contrast against the background looks great.
Thanks for sharing!

Wow, fantastic shot! I know it is difficult to capture birds in flight, this is a really fantastic shot. You seem to have the perfect lens for shots like these.
Well done

Very fine capture, indeed! It is nice that it skims in parallel the border between reeds and sky.



Bonjour Jeroen,
La profondeur de champ est excellente et la lumière splendide mais pour la composition il me semble que la position du sujet, chevauchant à la fois les deux parties de l'arrière plan, n'est pas très judicieuse.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
