salut Emmanuel,
impressionnante image, le décalage entre la fragilité de l'oiseau et la force des chutes est bien trouvé. Belle maîtrise de la vitesse.


beautiful image, , wonderful POV and composition. thanks!! Carme.

Hi Emmanuel,
All these whites are really coming through...which is not evident.

Hi Emmanuel,
This is a superb camera work!
Your composition is so amazing, and you managed to get a very good focus on the egret despite of the running water behind which is also white. So elegant and esthetic photo. Bravo and TFS

Hello Emmanuel,
Fantastic to be this observant and to have time to get the camera out!! Superb capture, the heron is beautifully in focus and I like the water curtains behind. Brilliant composition!
Many thanks, Ulla

very nice and artistic, TFS Ori

Cher Emmanuel
C'est bien la preuve qu'il ne faut pas un supertélé pour faire des superimages!
This shows that you do not need a super-tele-lens to make super pictures

Wow, Emmanuel! This is outstanding... I would like one of these on the wall! (send me one in A1)

The perfect composition makes it all... no need to say more.


Oh boy! This is nice Emmanuel. I love the white on white effect. It is a wonderfully executed and presented image. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Bonjour Emmanuel,
C'est vraiment presqu'un ange. Photo très originale, sortant d'un rêve ou d'un autre monde. Bravo

Hi Emmanuel,
Really nice capture, and I must say fantastic timing, the suspended capture of the egret flying across shows perfect detail. I think you meant to title it like this - 'Did I see an angel?'. 'Saw' would be past tense. :)


Réellement superbe cette prise! Tu doit vouloir concurencer Vincent Munier!! ;)


What a beautiful image with such power and scale.
The composition and timing is superb.
