Salut Jean Yves
Jolie presentation.Excelelnte composition et image bien en focus.Le detaisl est excellent.Lumiere et couleurs sont parfaite.
Merci Michel

Hi Jean,
A nicely timed capture with good detail and perspective, I would like to have seen a little more space to the right for the birds to fly into, which would have given a stronger composition. Nice work though.

Hi Jean,

This is a fine couple. Very sharp in flight shot with great details and natural colors.Your timing was just right.


Bonjour Jean,

Très beau duo, ta rapidité à cliquer t'a permis de nous présenter ces 2 mallards dans une excellente position en vol. Une belle diagonale donne également un beau mouvement à cette image.
De belles couleurs naturelles, un focus parfait et une grande netteté. Bravo!


You really froze the action on these two mallards. I like the tandem movement. Color and exposure look excellent. I think the frame constrains the movement a bit and feels busy. The black and white are such high contrast that they visually come forward...conflicting with the birds' movement. The white is a different shade of white than the snow white makes the snow look dingy and grayer. Play around with some different ideas and I think you could make this image really "Pop!"
