Wow! Beautiful... and only ISO 250 @ 1/2000 - f8. I'm guessing this image was quite dark and you brightened it up yet it worked out so well. Texture detail in the heads, necks and wings. Your ? model Nikon sure has good dynamic range, seems to me.
Life can give us a surprise bite and for a time we are worried about the total unfairness of some surprises. The walking stick suggests a sudden event. Time passes and calm and assurance returns ... until the next surprise. I'm getting old and vow to stay tough. Just had dental work done.. My finances need time to bounce back. Good portrait of us who are getting older. TG
There are two or three different wreck scenes on Elsmere Island. Climate there is very dry so no signs of rust much, even on old scrap bulldozers. I wonder if it is also quite dry in this part of Iceland? No burn signs so may have been survivors on this Dakota. There can be odd feelings around crash sites sometimes. Mostly when you know the history. I saw old group photos before I saw the wrecks on Elsmere. You have a very tangible image here and no sign of processing. Good work. TG
We get that rising cloud bank between town and the mountains also, but lately it has all been very dark grey. This is a refreshing reminder that sunny days will return. Lots of green on those low mountains and loads of detail in those buildings with many TV antennas. I'm the only one with a TV antenna around here. Everyone is on cable and many can not afford it. Thanks for this well composed view of Italy. TG
That is just a packsack, not more legs but still the image stumbles and fails as the lone quality is not there. I prefer not to counter senior opinions above but while this is a great subject, any attempt from this angle can not deliver a good result. Just an opinion remember. Lets all stay friends. Lucky that you can re-visit and make more images. Your previous one was terrific. TG
