bonjour andrea
magnifique ton vol d'oiseaux
belle nettet

Cool action shot of this two guys :)

Bonjour Andrea,
C'est une photo tonnante, superbement bien saisie. Les bestioles semblent aborbes par leur but. On croirait qu'elle nagent !! Magnifique.

hi andrea!
really a great capture with
very fine quality!
nice composition
good work!

il titolo dice tutto sospese!!!!! si sembrano proprio attaccate ad uno sfondo...pare neanche vera

Great in-flight capture, you managed to capture two that came to landing.

Hi andrea
This is a perfect picture ofa pair off birds in flight. very very nice.

Hallo Andrea,
hey, they are looking funny, Anser & Anser two by two walking in the air from Italy to Buenos Aires.
Brilliant shot, very clear and well detailed, with rich colours, well composed!
Thank you, and best regards,

A very nice crystal clear shot of these grey geese. The lighting is very nice in this capture which allows the viewer to enjoy a lot of the wonderful detail. :)

Hi Andrea,
Your in flight captures conyinue to amaze me. Wonderful details and color, looks like the web feet act like air brakes as well as swimming tools.

Dear Andrea!
I have to say, that I rather rare comment bird picture because this is not my favourite group of vertebrates. But this picture is really nice :) The birds looks like during "synchronous fly" :)
Best greeting and TFS!

A fantastic in-flight capture, Andrea.
The parallel positions of these geese definitely add interest to this shot.
Amazing details for an action shot.
The expressions on their faces and the pose of their legs are wonderful to behold.
TFS. : )

Woo that is some close quarter flying!

Looks like they're coming into land with the undercarriage down. Nice capture with very fast shutter keeping all the detail frozen. Gorgeous blue sky leaves no distractions for the subjects.
Good job


bonjour andrea
cette photo d'oies me fait penser a deux mirage sur le point d'atterrir.
la nettet est bonne sur les deux oiseaux.
c'est une belle capture.bravo.

Allo Andrea,
This is truly a super picture. Everything is good here: details, exposure, colors, composition, POV, etc. This is a great and beautiful shot! Well done and thanks!

Bellissima questa foto di oche con "aerofreni" aperti. Colori e tutto il resto perfetti!

Grazie, ciao, Emanuele

Quel magnifique duo comme une patrouille d'avions.
Bonne journe.

Hello Andrea,

What a wonderful capture of a formation flight of these two geese! Placing the subjects into one of the strongest points of the picture is a guarantee of a good composition! Also the birds have plenty of space in front of them to glide into. The background is as good as it gets! The plain blue sky enhances your picture and also adds to the overall contrast! Very well done!
The colors are well saturated and look natural! The details are fine and sharpness is consistent throughout the whole body of the birds. Great job on the exposure too. It's easy to mis-expose these kind of shots but you managed well! The details in the underwing are still clearly visible even if in shadow! Outstanding job! TFS!

With Friendly Regards,

They look like model birds suspended by strings! You certainly froze that action with a razor sharp capture. Nice work.

Evelynn : )

Bellissima Andrea, sembrano quasi finte tanto son ben sincronizzate nella posa di volo, un cinquemilesimo di secondo le ha appese per aria in maniera incredibile, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Andrea,

Light: very good warm light

I love this shot. Both geese are in perfect sharp focus. The colors are well saturated. It is asthetically pleasing with both geese frozen in almost identical pose. I have never seen a shutter speed of 1/5000. Wow...it works!!! A favorite.

Hello Andrea,
Even though we have hundreds and hundreds of these geese all around I'm so fond of them and you've really captured their beauty here. Well-timed and very sharp and lovely colours!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Andrea

I knew there was sincronized swimming as a sport...but sincronized flying...never heared of it :)))
This is a splendid double in-flight that deserves all the compliments!
The fact that you freezed the action is great, but the fact that you managed to catch both of them in the exact same pose is just fantastic!!!

Hi Andrea, this is a great shot of synchronized flying. Your composition is very good, giving them room to fly, with excellent detail. The colour on geese contrasts very nicely with the blue sky.

Thanks, John

Very sharp and clean shot Andrea.TFS
Sorry p.t.

Hello Andrea and thank you very much for a remarkable, technically perfect, shot and the very comic situation you've suceeded in capturing at the very right moment! What a unique composition! This is one of those rare pictures that engraves itself on one's memory for ever. TFS

Hi Andrea,
Really a great capture with
very fine quality!
Great work!


Mama mia! Andrea this is a gorgeous shot! It seems timeless.
I wonder what the control tower had to say about this landing! Tfs, Jay

PS It reminds me of the slogan for one US airline: "Fly United!"...

Hi Andrea,

What a lovely airplanes shot... They fly like the Frecce Tricolori ;o)
Really nice instant shot. Well seen and well done...


O che belli! Sembrano due aerei in planata.
Bella composizione! Mi piace.

That is just great! Perfect photo!

Hello Andrea,

A wonderful capture in flight, a bonus having two of them together, detail is good, but I feel could have been better had you used center weight metering instead of pattern, none the less an excellent capture

Hi Andrea. This is superb, both birds in what seems to be landing mode. Unusual and excellent to see. Murray.

Hi Andrea. They're coming in like puppets. Very cute with their orange little feet and beaks. Great colours and focus. The framing works well. A pleasant shot of these Grey Geese. TFS Trevor
