still no babies after 6 weeks of breeding :(. Going through the old ones to archive I found this one I still wanted to share. Due to the spot metering on the breast, the photo was quite dark, whch imo dds to the atmosphere

Boonsoir Jeroen,

Splendid picture you have here. Sharp focus on the eye, great exposure in a beautifull light. Low POV is fantastic and the "Bokeh" looks great. Excellent work and TFS.


wow, this is striking, TFS Ori

Fantastic capture Jeroen!! I love the mysterious light here and the impeccable clarity of the image! The great dept of field and the clean background are an awesome element of the image as well! Bravo!

Hi Jeroen!
Excellent capture! The adequate low POV, natural colours, sharp detailed subject, well blurred BG makes this photo to be a favorite of mine.
Good work! Maybe if you would been able to capture the subject a little bit to the left leaving more space in the right it would be a masterpiece... But it's just an opinion. :-))

Hello Jeroen,
Lovely shot of this hungry duck..the special light of your picture creates a very fine atmosphere. Beautiful red eye as counterpoint to the other subtle colors of the background. Very pleasant shot.
Kind regards

A finely executed capture under a magical illumination Jeroen, that red eye is really rather nicely emphasized here my friend, TFS indeed!

hello Jeroen
super foto met mooie donkere achtergrond
zeer goed van details en mooie kleuren
groetjes lou

Hello Jeroen,
a very nice picture, the dull light is very pleasant.
But it's not to dark, we can still see details in the plumage.
I really like the low POV here, did you get wet? :-)
Good sharpness and nice colours, the eye is amazing.
Fine work.

Hallo Jeroen,
Weer een speciale van een fuut. Het lage standpunt blijft heel opmerkelijk. Het maakt de foto heel bijzonder. Het licht is ook al zo apart. Schitterend met deze achtergrond. Uitstekende scherpte en oogcontact.

Hi Mate J.

You sure that this superb timely image is not dark!
Looking forward to see the babies too:)
Superb capture of this pretty beauty, the clarity and colours are so impressive. The composition, POV, DOF, focus and lighting all look first class!
TFS and have a nice night MF!

Hello Jeroen,
Wonderful image taken with lovely colors, good details, great POV and beautiful light. Well done!

Nice low POV the image works out really nice. The exposure is perfect, really nothing more to be said. Excellent image Jeroen. :)

Hi Jeroen
Quality shot.

Hi Jeroen!

When I have no idea for shooting I go to Klasztorne Lake (near my home), to capture this species.

Great shot with amazing dark green backgroud gives this shot great contrast.Excellent sharpness and great pose!
