Bonjour Jean-Paul,
A delightful capture of a female mallard with her ducklings on a lake. I like the composition and lighting both on the ducklings and the water.

Hi Jean-Paul.
I like the beautiful shot so much. Duck family is simply charming and color pattern of a lake surface is amazing. I also like excellent DOF and crisp sharpness of all pictured objects. Composition of the shot is wonderful too. My best regards and compliments.

Hi Jeanpaul,
This indeed is a beautiful family and you have captured them so nicely. Very neat and sharp image with nice colours and perfect lighting. The rippled waters create a fabulous effect and I like that splash of blue on them. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi Jean Paul,

Nice capture of this family outing. Well seen, TFS.

Hi Jeanpaul,
Beautiful capture. Though, the family is incomplete without both the parents! Well, just a comment. Nothing really serious.
Thanks a lot for sharing.

Bellissimo momento di cattura di nidiata di germani, un tipo d'immagine che amo anch'io riprendere, molto belli i riflessi e fantastica luce. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

C'est vraiment très joli, Jean-Paul, touchant et simple, j'adore ces petits canetons. La lumière est belle et se reflète très bien dans l'eau. Le bleuté des sillons est superbe. Merci!


salut Jean Paul

très belle photo de cette Maman colvert avec ses canetons,
avec un excellent POV et surtout DOF avec le background,
belle luminosité de l'image avec de belles netteté et détails,
c'est une image « tendresse » : le parent avec ses bébés,

Bonjour Jeanpaul!
It's a lovely capture and scenes like this always make me smile, they are so cute and you made excellent photo as always :)

Hi Jean Paul
A very cute image of this family of ducks swimming around in the water. The green reflection in the water is a nice contrast to the ducks and adds nice textures. Well composed, nice colours and lighting.

Hello Jean-Paul,
It is always lovely to see the Mallard with her young - it gives such a peaceful impression. This is a beautiful capture of this group from a fine POV and I like the reflections and colours of the water.

Salut Jeanpaul, excellente capture que ces jeunes Colverts avec maman! Très jolie composition et belle technique, bravo et merci.


Bonjour Jean-Paul,

Les réflexion dans l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du groupe de canards. L'intensité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs. Bonne journée.
