A pretty silhouette of these to ducks Joseph. The firey red colour is really different and looks very nice against the sparkling water.

Ce n'est pas du Jossim habituel, mais ça nous accroche l'oeil. Oser le différent! Bravo, Joseph.
J'aime beaucoup.


Hi Joseph,
Different. Creative. This one makes a unique impression on the viewer, with the ducks form well seen in dark relief against the light BG..Dazzing sparkles of light that intrique :)
Very well done mf.

Hi Joseph,
Very nice image and quite different from your usual style. Nice mood in the image created by the warm tones and water highlights.

Hello Joseph,
Pleasant in-flight composition!
Well done on this most likable image...

Hi Joseph

A lovely shot. I like the golden tones to the shot. Nice in-flight capture. TFS.

Hi Joseph,
superb colours and lighting. The POV is good.
Well composed.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Lovely composition!
Excellent inflight shot.
The sun reflected on the water is amazing.


Hi Joseph,
A really beautiful photo. The control on the exposure while shooting into the sun is perfect. It gave the entire photo some really stunning colors. The OOF BG with the reflecting water is well captured. Great silhouttes wiht the lighted edges on the wings.

Bonjour Joseph,
Muy bella foto a contraluz, me gusta mucho la silueta de los patos volando contra ese fondo acuático bien luminoso y con un color maravilloso. Una imágen delicada.

Bonjour Joseph, superbe photo de contre jour avec une lumiére magnifique . Les spots sont du plus bel effet. Félicitations, Didier.

Very pleasing to look at. The strange colours, soft focus and lack of detail would normally be a problem but they are what makes this photo so good. I like it a lot!
