Bonjour Laurent
Superbe portrait.Excellent PDV et image bien en focus.J'aime beaucoup le details des goutte d'eau sur le plumage du sujet.
Merci Michel

Quelle photo superbe Laurent! J'aime beaucoup le cadrage serré qui met en valeur son bel oeil rouge et les plumes mouillées de sa tête. Cela vallait bien l'affut. L'arrière-plan horizontal vert et blanc forme un joli contraste avec la courbe du cou du grève. Sans aucun doute une de mes favorites!
Amitiés,
Catherine

Hello Laurent,
I'm sorry I have no points left for this one -but you'll have them tomorrow! This is so lovely so I can't wait! I love the close view of this beautiful Grebe with great focus on the red eye and very fine details of the wet plumage. Wonderful colours too and a fine background that makes it stand out. Well done!

Hello Laurent, I do love these Great Crested Grebes - I've only seen them on TN and wish we had them here in NZ. They are so attractive.
Lovely capture of it swimming among the waterlilies.

Hi Laurent,

A beautiful image, wonderful composition, but I don't feel that the black frame complements the image, it would look better without that.

Thanks,
John
