Phantom of the marsh

Heather Mellon

Great title.. the composition and lighting give the viewer a real sense of a phantom bird in action here. I really like the drama you captured with such artistry here. Much better viewing than all the ads that have invaded the site again too.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Heather. An artistic shot once in a while keeps the cameraman happy.

Debra Plett

I agree with Jenny this is a very artistic image Yves. The backlighting has produced very nice effect on the water and a very nice reflection of the bird.

Yves Langlois

Thanks for the much appreciated comments Debra.

Jenny Stevens

One very artistic photograph. Light and shadows make a great comp.

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much Jenny. Unfortunately I cannot compete the big boobs of the escort advertising next to my presentation, but I do my best.

Sometime the condition of shooting produce an unusual photo. Here a morning backlight The strong sunlight still low on the horizon turn all the lilly pads to white. Most likely a female blackbird picking an insect on a lilly pad,
