Salut Pat
Y pas que le canard qui semble pressé...
Très belle prise et fond filé, belles couleurs et bonne netteté pour un sujet en mouvement.
Faut te pressé Pat...Nikon et surement en train de préparer le D350... ;-)
Bonne chasse avec ton nouveau boitier!
A bientôt, amicalement Robi

Hello Pat, amazing colours and a fine shot of this duck in full flight..great composition, .your old camera has served you well!!

Hello Pat,

Surely a new camera won't improve on this wonderful shot! Superb colours and details!

I always envy people who can take action shots! I don't think my eyes move fast enough!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Pat,

Hi Pat

A was a bit scared when i read the title...i though something bad had happened and that you were leaving us...
But i was relieved when i read you note :) Nice work! The new D300 sounds like a very very good camera! Good luck with it!

This is a very beautiful in-flight of a lovely mallard.
I like the pose you captured it in and the beautiful BG you managed to get - with all those nice ripples on the surface of the water.
Very neat and nicely composed, too.

Bravo and TFS
Horia

Hi Pat. Great capture! It's amazing how you were able to get such a sharp shot of a flying bird. Colors are great. Regards, Yvonne

Il parait que le D300 est fantastique et que des accros de Canon ont tout vendu pour se tourner vers Nikon... j'ai bien hâte d'entendre tes commentaires à ce sujet! Parce que, par exemple, avec ta D200 tu nous as présenté de superbes photographies, toujours techniquement parfaites et avec des sujets intéressants. Ce canard en plein vol est non seulement bien réussi sur le plan technique (wow, un beau panning!) mais la photo est superbe. L'arrière plan marron chatoyant(!) est superbe, les couleurs du canard chatoient sur ce velours. Très beau Pat, comme toujours, merci!

Francine

Hi Pat,
Ok now I've read the other comments I understand, but you had me going there for a moment, excellent image of this duck in full flight, just stunning {I'm still trying :( they just don't seem to stay still long enough in full flight} ? Colours and detail also excellent can't wait to see some picks from the D300, all the best Cheers Rick :)

salut Pat

tu m'as vraiment fait peur avec ton titre en me disant
pourquoi qu'il nous quitterais

qu'elle superbe image en vol de ce canard colvert,
j'aimes beaucoup ce genre de photo de canard Pat,
excellente luminosité à l'avant-plan de l'image,
excellente netteté et détails, le floue de l'arrière-plan
et du bout des ailes nous fait deviner la vitesse de l'envol

merci pour cette belle photo Pat
et bonne chance avec ta nouvelle acquisition

This is a very good photo of flying bird. Excelent colors of males duck plumege. Very good rasor sharp image despite the moving subject. Interesting eye contact with the bird despite your rear position.

Thank you for sharing,

I always look forward to seeing postings from you.
This too is a fantastic picture. Thanks a lot for sharing, and being on TN.

Hi Pat,
At first seeing your title I felt very sorry that you are leaving :). But from the notes I came to know that it is the last post from 200. CONGRATULATIONS for owning a 300. A fine capture of this beautiful duck. Excellent sharp details well timed and very good composition. Hope see much more better and creative shots from the new D300. My best Regards

I was really worried you were actually going to leave TN then!!
Then I translated your note and realised your D200 is leaving to be replaced by the D300 :-) This is great news.
I've heard that the D300 is one of the best on the market, you lucky person :-)

Stunning capture of this flying Mallard.
The composition is very dynamic.
Excellent movement.
Beautiful colours.
Very well done Pat.
Thanks for sharing this.
Looking forward to some shots from the D300 :-D

Remercie mon ami,

Hi Pat,

I read the title and thought - oh no! But then I used the translater to learn the real meaning. A magnificent capture of this duck in flight. Colors are wonderful and the details of the face, body, and wings are superb. Congratulations on the new camera but I don't see how a picture can be better than this.

Hi Pat.
Outstanding in-flight picture. I like all in it. Bright rich colours, crisp sharpness of the bird image, terrific timing and wonderful BG. Shot is framed and composed precisely. Great job. Bravo.
Alexei.

Hello Pat,
Excellent in-flight capture!
Good panning effort and I love the motion blur in the wingtips...
Great cololurs & details in the plumage, well composed image!
Greetings,

Bellissima immagine, con il soggetto ben definito che si stacca dallo sfondo con un effetto panning, molto belli anche i colori. Complimenti anche per la nuova D300. Ciao Maurizio

Jolies couleurs de ce canard bien net avec un mouvement superbement saisi. Ah, j'aimerais bien un jour pouvoir faire de telles photos!
On attend la suite de tes aventures...

Salut Patt,
Last but not least, mais tu nous fais peur avec des titres pareils !
On attendra dimanche !
Antoine.

Hi Pat,
Hey, the title caused alarm!
So good the issue is just about a new camera.
You show a great timing in this shot to catch all that info on the flying subject.
Colours and sharp details are of fine quality.
Hope the dimanche will come soon for you!
Congratulations and thanks for share it.

Excellent in flight shot.The focus is sharp.
Wonderful plumage detail and colours.
The shot is well composed with a lovely job of panning.
Very good DOF,the OOF BG is super.

Bonsoir Pat,

Très bonne composition. Très bonne netteté. J'ai eu du mal à comprendre ce qu'était le flou au-dessous du canard, je pensais que c'étaient les pattes, mais non, c'est l'aile de l'autre côté, et c'est normal que ce soit flou. Photo d'excellente qualité avec une superbes lumière et couleurs.
Bonne soirée,

Salut Pat! Il est superbe ton Colvert en vol, c'est bien piqué avec un contrôle de l'exposition parfait! Du bon travail mon ami! Félicitations pour ton nouvel achat, est-ce qu'il y a beaucoup de différences entre les deux appareils? Merci !

Mario

Hallo Pat
How I envy but also admire you for this shot. I really admire photographers who can take a shot like this, and make it look so uncomplicated. I think my actions are to slow for this kind of "Bird in flight" photography. This is another great example of this skill. View point, colours and sharpness are excellent. Perfectly timed to get a wonderful body and wing position. They say that practice makes perfect, and I consider this as a perfect shot. There is nothing else to add here besides that this shot is perfect! Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.
Anna

Bonsoir Pat,
Tu as réussi une excellente capture de ce canard en vol, très belle photo, avec des beaux détails et couleurs.
Félicitations et bon week-end!

Good, not the last one but just the end of an era and now begins a new one with a new camera!! I look forward to your new pics!! You managed to capture this Drake very well in flight. Great focus on the head and fine details. Lovely colours and a fine colour of the background too.

je vois que toi aussi tu t'équipes en gros joujou, mais pas besoin d'attendre pour admirer cette belle prise de vue. Le mouvement est bien figé (sauf pattes) avec une bonne gestion des lignes qui donne un bel effet épuré.
bravo

Outstanding shot and you have freezed the action magnificently. Great colours and details with superb lighting and sharp focus. The rippled golden water provides a fabulous BG. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Pat,
J'aime la plupart les couleurs saisissantes que je vois. Excellent DOF, détail, exposition, pose pendante, et composition. Le D300 devrait vous servir bien.

Bonjour Pat,

La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de ce canard en vol, sujet difficile à photographier. L'image est claire et nette. La lumière à un bel effet sur les couleurs. Bonne journée.
