[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi guys! Would appreciate if you'll take time to look at and to comment this photo!
It was taken in, almost, impossible light conditions: early in the morning (6,45 AM), on a forest road, with heavy clouds on the sky, distance aprox. 30-35 meters, focal length 500mm, f/8, ISO 800, 1/20s, exposure correction:-0.7 EV, handheld, panning... This is the result... :-) Had no time for other settings, or to use the tripod... Though, don't know if it would help more... :-)
Thank you!

Salut Csaba,
Intradevar conditii imposibile de fotografiat si totusi imaginea este cu totul deosebita....Felicitari si numai bine!

Szia Csabi!
Szerintem kiváló kép, a nehéz fény- és egyéb viszonyok ellenére. Olyan, mint egy impresszionista festmény, remekül mutatja be a vaddisznó sebességét, és a rohanásban is kiváló kompozíció született. Talán a szinteket máshogy állítottam volna (ahogy ezt a WS-ben meg is tettem), de összességében ez egy művészi kép. Én nem tudnék ilyet csinálni. Kalapot le, remek fotó!
Üdv, Laci

excellent wildlife image.beautifully framed andpresented. tfs.

Hi Csaba
I like it very much as the ambiance is very well caught, also the waves in the animal's fur are lovely
great shot for me

Buna Csaba
La o astfel de imagine, titul este potrivit. Si la urma urmei, s-au vazut foarte multe imagine clare, perfecte cu porci mistreti; Insa, a ta e un pic altfel. Si e foarte faina!
Numai bine,
ps: mi s-au terminat punctele pe ziua de azi!

Hello Csaba,
These guys are very rare here in my state of Ohio. For this reason I would be thrilled just to capture any image of one, even if it wasn't technically perfect or excepted by others.
This particular shot shows the wild boar running very fast in it's natural habitat and not in an enclosure, and that is what is important to me. You did a fine job considering the circumstance and conditions in which you took the photo, as well as the settings you were forced to use.
