bonjour a vous toute et tous
Oiseau aquatique de la taille d'une oie, le Grand Cormoran est presque complètement noir avec reflets métalliques bleutés et un peu bronze discernables à faible distance. Il se distingue des cormorans huppé et pygmée par sa taille supérieure, sa silhouette plus massive, ainsi que par une zone jaunâtre à la base du bec. En plumage nuptial, il arbore une gorge blanche, et une tache blanche sur la cuisse, qui disparaît souvent dès juin. Cette grande tache blanche, portée par les deux sexes, sert de signal au moment des parades. En hiver, ces marques blanches disparaissent sur les cuisses et celle de la tête diminue, ce qui rend difficile la distinction avec le Cormoran huppé, pourtant plus petit. Le Grand Cormoran possède un bec jaune puissant doté d'un crochet acéré à l'extrémité, et donc bien adapté à la capture des poissons.

salut Eric,
ta photo à quelle chose d'étrange, il semble tout nu ce cormoran. La profondeur de champ limitée donne à la zone orange encore plus de poids.
Très bons détails.

What a stunning photograph ! The POV is excellent, the focus draws attention those emerald green eyes. The eyes tell it all.

Hi Eric. Amazing portrait. Technically perfect picture. Excellent coloured presentation. Very well done. tfs. Stev

bonjour eric
la netteté est remarquable au niveau des yeux mais un reglage different de diaphragme aurait surement permit d'avoir le bout du bec net egalement.

Un primer plano extremo Eric con un apretado DOF que brinda un escaso foco muy estético.
Los colores captados son maravillosos con un excelente contraste con el fondo de la escena.
Existe un ligero ruido de fondo, posiblemente por el uso del ISO400, pero no desmerece la calidad de la presentación.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

An extreme close up plan Eric with a tight DOF that offers a scarce focus very aesthetic.
The captured colors are wonderful with an excellent contrast with the bottom of the scene.
A slight bottom noise exists, possibly for the use of ISO400, but non be unworthy of the quality of the presentation.
Thank you and greetings... Ricardo

Hello Eric,
Those eyes are amazing and you have captured them so well. Sharpness, detail, exposure are excellent. I wish the nose was not that blurry, but I realize that that was inevitable.
Best wishes,
Hakan

Hi Eric

Another Brilliant (with a capital B) portrait!
This is definately fantastic and i really like the way you kept the DOF to a minimal - only the eyes!
It almost appears as if there is a real line where the full-focus area starts adn stops.
The sharpness in that region is simply impeccable and the natural colors are terrific.
Very beautifil work with the framing and the composition, too.

Bravo and TFS
Horia

Bonjour Eric !
Cet oiseau a l'air bien étrange, vu de cet angle ! :-) C'est original en tout cas. Les détails sont excellents, tout comme les couleurs, la composition et l'arrière-plan flou. J'adore aussi les beaux yeux vert éeraude du cormoran. félicitations !
Valérie.

Hello Eric,
The narrow DOF works well in this fine portrait!
Fine dynamic framing, colours and details are outstanding...
A great portrait indeed!
Greetings,
Pablo -

Allo Éric,
Wow, c'est vraiment une prise de vue impressionnante. Crois-tu que tu aurais pû être plus près ? :)Bravo pour ces détails et exposition. Il a des yeux impressionnants. J'aurais eu tendance à appliquer Neat Image sur le BG et dans la région de son cou mais bon, c'eat vraiment mineur. Bravo!
