Hallo Paul,
Fantastisch om weer eens een foto van je te zien. Wat een sneeuw! Hier ligt niets, alles is groen. En dan loopt er plotseling zo'n zwijn in je tuin!
Schitterende foto, haar scherp met veel details. Hij contrasteert mooi tegen de sneeuw en ook leuk dat je hem zo van voren hebt kunnen nemen.
Hoop nu binnenkort wat meer foto's van je te zien,

Hello Paul
Congrats for seven years on TN!
Wonderful moment and beautiful capture of this species in frontal POV.Wonderful colours and light management.Excellent sharpness.Thank You.
Have a good Sunday!
Best regards

Hallo Paul
It is so great to see one of the older stalwards images on the gallery and to add to that it is part of a celebration too. Congratulations on your 7th anniversary here on the site. Thanks for all the splendid images you shared in the time that I have been part of Trek Nature and thanks for sharing this one of the visitor in your garden too. I like the contrast between the black fur of the wild boar and white snow. Best regards.

Ciao Paul.
Auguri per i sette anni su T.N. festeggiati con un’eccellente foto di questo esemplare di Cinghiale. Eccellente la nitidezza con ottimi dettagli,splendidi colori,molto bella complimenti.
Ciao Marco.

Hi Paul,

Very interesting and beautiful pic to celebrate your 7th.

I took the liberty of playing with Highlights/Shadows to bring our some more details in the boar and the background. Please see WS.

Hi Paul,very nice meeting in the snow in the last week,a great scoop,perfect to celebrate your 7 years on TN,great details and perfect exposure in this difficult situation whit a white background.Have a nice week and thanks,Luciano

Congratulations on your 7th anniversary Paul. I hope we can see your nice posts here for a long time.
This is very nice shot from anterior POV and with nice focus. Snowy BG is very nice. Thanks for sharing. All the best

Hi Paul,
Congratulations for your 7 years anniversary on TN. Your image is wonderful - almost b/w with perfect balance between bright and dark. I like your exposure, although Ishi's WS is an interesting version, too. No overexposion on the whites, details on the blacks - and which is more, the photo has its own atmosphere; gives the feeling I'm there, and see the scene 'in-situ'. Great job. Congrats and tfs.
Best regards, László
