About the Image(s)

Our photo club has organised a photo trip in June. We have stopped also in a protected area of three larger ponds called Rački ribniki. There are many water birds, frogs, dragonflies and other animals. My wife and me and some other members, who like animals, could stay there a whole day. But others prefer cities and wanted to hurry on. In an hour and a half we succeed to capture some nice photos. Here is a larger swan's family in contra light.

Nikon P900, 370 mm on built in lens, ISO 100, F7,1, 1/800s manual, crop, increasing contrast with highlights, levels and curves in Photoshop Elements.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

The swan family is a beautiful capture, especially with the light coming from the upper right behind them. It sets them off in such a pleasing way. All of your edit - contrast, levels, curves are just right.   Posted: 10/12/2019 13:32:59

Nice shot but I would like to see a tighter crop, after all, the birds are what we want to see ... not the water. Your post processing was done well.   Posted: 10/16/2019 20:22:25

Beautiful family photo. The image is sharp and lighting looks good too. Your post processing is good and you are able to bring out the details in shadow areas. I would like to see a more tight cropped image with less negative space.   Posted: 10/19/2019 04:08:50

Interesting pose of the swans. They are too green and could be lightened and the image cropped more. Refer to suggested image. Good sharpness.   Posted: 10/19/2019 15:29:19

What a great job capturing the swan family and "friend. "In my opinion, the right and left spaces are just right. You might consider a widescreen crop to eliminate a bit of the top and bottom space. (I do a lot of work in video, so 16:9 always looks good to me.) To my eye, thet swans are just a bit too green and their heads a bit too shadowed.   Posted: 10/19/2019 23:32:59
