hello Laurent
great shot beautiful photo

Salut, Laurent!

You captured a wonderful moment!
Great sharpness, nice POV and great timings to get such a nice position of the bird during flight. Beak and eyes of the bird are well shown and the stretched claws are just awesome.
Thanks for sharing.

greetings from Germany,

Hello Laurent,
Beautiful photo of this Godwit in flight. Good sharpness, details and natural colours. Great composition with a lot of space around the bird. Good POV and timing.

I think that flying subjects are always difficult to capture, and here you have done it so very nicely.actually this single image commands more then 100 points.I do not know how you do it.

excellent inflight-shot of the pretty wading bird! :-) i guess that was not so easy as they normally fly quite fast.
sharpness and colors are really good, and the blurred green background is great too. well done & best wishes, thor.

Bonita y difícil captura Laurent de un ave que creo que no conozco. Buen fondo y encuadre.
Buena semana: Josep Ignasi.

salut Laurent

une excellente photo du Chevalier gambette à l'envol,
excellent POV et cadrage en laissant une bonne espace
devant l'oiseau pour s'envoler, superbe focus à l'envol
avec une excellente netteté et détails, joli arrière-plan
flou qui met en evidence l'oiseau à l'envol,

j'aimerais un jour pouvoir faire des photos d'envol
de la même qulaité d'image que ta photo ici, TFS


Ciao Laurens, bellissimo uccello in volo, fantastico sfondo, splendida composizione, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Laurent. Very well done for this inflight picture. It looks like you were flying with the bird. You have frozen the momentso well. with fine detail in the natural colours feathers. The orange legs and bill shows up well. TFS.

Hello Laurent
Very nice photo, very good sharpness and very difficult bird.
I see you have the nikkor 300 f4. I'm thinking about buying one and wanted to know your opinion. It would be to mount a nikon d 200.
Thank you.
