Superbe photo Toni, j'aime beaucoup cette composition trés simple mais trés évocative. Félicitations Didier.

Splendide composition et bel effet de miroir.
Toute l'élégance de l'oiseau est bien restituée.

Hi Toni.
Composition with the reflection and the water textures is very nice. I think the whites are a bit overexposed, but stil a very nice post. TFS.

Jolie photo Toni !
A l'affut du poisson.
Bravo !

Hi Toni, this is a very nice shot. The reflection is excellent and it's a very nice composition. A great looking bird too. Very well done.

Hi Toni, 1st your link to the note does not seem to work.
The image is very nice , love the colours and reflection in the water, the white of the bird its self are a little over exposed, which is a shame as the rest is very good, F16 might of helped to keep some of the details lost there.It is possible to recover details from dark areas where in over bright ones they are lost for good.
Hope this is of help

Very nice shot, Toni.
The birds is a little OE but very well composed.
Good colours, details and a fantastic reflection.
Very well done.

Superbe photo !

Horror, horror on the hall ... just kiddin' good shot but whites are 'bit fried ...

That is a beautiful picture... beautiful stork on that still water... with the reflection. Excellent composition. The white is a bit overexposed, but does not detract from this great shot. Well done, Toni!

Nice composition. The background is spot on, although the actual bird is burned out severely in places. Reducing the EV by a little, say 0.7 of a stop would have helped prevent this, as would checking the Histogram after taking the shot so you could retake it at the correct exposure.

Hello Toni! I wrote a comment on Lestef's Stork a few hours ago and I can tell you the same. Because there are so few Storks in NL (only 300 pairs) I really like to watch Stork pictures. Your photo is very nice. The pose is great and so is the POV. You slightly burnt the whites and that's a pitty, but overall this is a very good shot. TFS!

Trés bel effet de reflection, qui donne toute sa force à ton image, joli travail sur la composition également. La netteté n'est pas en reste, c'est tip top



Awesome Toni. Whites are OE, but the composition is fantastic. Lovely reflection. I like how you have captured the ripples too. Nice work. Well done. Thanks

Very nice capture Toni,

Belle et intéressante composition photographique pour cette cigogne avec son reflet. Je préfère celle-ci à la suivante, même si le blanc est un peu surexposé ;-)
Well Done !

L'image est grandiose et le cadrage magnifique, très belle réflections, les couleurs sont un peu contrasté mais n'affecte pas l'ensemble.

Belle capture Toni,


Lovely composition and reflections. The whites are a bit OE but not distracting. Very well done.
