In flight

As a sequel to my previous post I'm showing ducks again at lake Balaton. You can read through the circumstances of the sequence there.

But this time I thought to post it in LP too, as the picture looked best for me in this format anyway.
I hope you're OK with quality in the LP too, I'm a bit confused with sharpening large photos - I always ruin oof parts I think. I would really appreciate your honest suggestions on this issue!

*** made size fit for uploading LP ***

Thanks for viewing,

Hello Andor,
Very nice picture. Especially pleases to me in the version large. This photo delivers to me also the precious information on the subject effects obtained by means of Pentacona. Since a long time I thought hereof the manual lens and I reflected over the possibility of his buying. This photo brought near me to such decision.
Best regards from Poznan,

Hi Andor!

Oh, it's beautiful! And what a good idea to present this picture in panoramic format. It suits the subject very well. The spread out wings ask for that format and underline the movement. All in your picture is pure nature, is peaceful and appeals for admiration.

Kind regards


Hello Andor,

very nice panorama shot from these inflying Mallards.


Hi Andor,
What a wondergful inflight moment you managed to capture here. I like that both ladies are in a different moment of their flight. The panorama version does make the composition powerful. The focus in this photo is extreemly good. Both subjects are razor sharp. I like the motion captured in the tip of the wings and the texture of the OOF BG.

Hi Andor,
Very well captured timely capture of these beautiful ducks in-flight with great DOF and POV.
TFS and cheers,
