Congratulations on a well executed photograph.
Willfergus: AMAZING CAPTURE! 5 stars
Thank you... not sure about 5 stars!
Beautiful nuances - and just a perfect amount of contrast between the birds. Makes you appreciate what a good photographer can achieve with just a few colours and beautiful lighting.
And sincere appreciation for that fact that you dragged the 400mm along for this shot - no substitute for image quality for you I guess.
Appreciate the complement. Irony and honesty ensues that dragging the prime included a short distance. Standing at dawn, in formidable temperatures of about +10F, while the cranes waded in water, translates to numb fingers and the real challenge.
Yochi23: What a beautiful capture!
Yochi23 - Thank you very much for your kind words!
Leslee -- Thank you! It did hang on my wall but as the month of March in a self-made 2011 calendar.
