lovely colours on the bg,
well composed shot,
nice pov, good dof,
tfs & regards
Wow. This is an amazing capture, Evelynn. Great composition, too. Technically, it seems amazingly crisp. You got 1/800 in low light -- that's pretty great, even at 800 ISO. Great details in the feathers and in the grass. I don't see much noise, but there does seem to be some artifacts in the green area. Did you run this through a noise filter?

Evelynn, everything is great here: the title, the photo...
I like sharpness, composition, pov and poses a lot.
A great moment and a great image.

so this is what you was talking about.
A nice picture with nice warm colours and quite good details. I like the POV and pose too.
But why 800 ISO, you could lower the ISO to at least 400 ISO or lower, you had room for it.

what a great display of the cranes. Allways a magnificant sight, but what I really like in your image is the colours and light. Soft tones and not too high contrast. There is some jpeg artrefacts in the green parts but that's just minor. Compliments,

Great title for this one, Evelynn.
This shot is really a spirit-lifter.
I love those cranes, and the movements.
Cannot help but break into a big smile.
I think the details are quite fine,
and the cranes show up really well against the BG, especially the yellow grass.
Love the warm colors.
TFS. : )

Great moment and nice capture, all is good.
Great photographer + great camera = great photo ! Sincerelly I like this superb action shot. The different "poses" of the birds are nice.
I am surprised that you had noise at 800 iso, with my 350D noise is invisible at this value...
Congratulations and Happy new year !

Though it would have been nicer to have had an entirely grassy BG I would have jumped for joy if I had taken this shot. This is sharp and is a nice action shot showing typical crane behaviour. The ISO 800 is not noticeable.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Wonderful capture of dancing cranes. Superb colours and sharpness. Excellent DOF and POV. I like the open wings and the way they dance with gay abandon. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

well ive never seen anything like this before, what a cracking shot.
you may have done quite a bit of noise reduction but the lighting and the detail is great. what makes the picture for me is the way you have caught the one at the back in mid jump, head above the rest, love it

Maravillosa y divertida escena Evelynn con la exacta velocidad para congelar la imagen en plena acción.
Me gustan los colores captados con buen desenfoque y contraste con el fondo.
El punto de vista combina muy bien con el encuadre elegido conformando una bella presentación.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo
Wonderful and amusing scene Evelynn with the exact speed to freeze the image in full action.
I like colors captured with good out of focus and contrast with the bottom.
The point of view combines very well with the elected framing conforming a beautiful presentation.
My best greetings... Ricardo

ManYee was right. This is sure TN material. Eventhough the noise removal has deleted some of the details surrounding the birds. the moment and the details in the birds are perfect. I just love the different poses you captured.

Regardless on th ISO setting, the image is still fantastic and passes with flying or hopping colors in my book. When I met Laurie I would do the same courting ritual with her by hopping up and down like the cranes, to this day I now have 4 kids all the hopping paided off. :)

I like this - good shot. Sandhill cranes are a favourite of mine. Patience paid of for you/ Well done.
