I was in Vienna more than twenty years ago and that time I went to Schmetterlinghaus - the Butterflies House. The whole hall of full of butterflies, they sat on almost every flower and also on the visitors. I was delighted and thought that if I ever come to Vienna again I would visit it. So this time I went to Schmetterlinghaus and... was disappointed. Not so many different species. I made some photos, a few of them nice, but they are rather for TrekNature. (I posted on FB). When I went from there, I saw this nice group of young people under the tree picnicking. I made some photos and it seemed they paid no attention. The title is "borrowed" from Manet, of course. And it was early evening, btw:)
Big photo on beta

What a lovely scene, so colourful and atmospheric ! I like the relaxed mood that you've captured here and the way you managed to catch these young people enjoying the day without knowing they were being photgraphed. The colours look natural as is the pose of these charming girls (and happy boy) sharing their picnic together on a sunny day. A fine image that makes you wish you were that young again !

This is a superb capture full of warmth and lovely colours. These youngsters a definitely enjoying themselves and their relaxed, carefree attitude is very well captured. Excellent image quality as always.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

The shade of the tree is welcome to have a picnic between friends in a summer day. If I look closely, there is a freezing Champagne bottle, so maybe they are having it for a good event (good result at the university).

A very pleasant, candid photo of these young picnickers. Nice composition, colours and clarity.

no tak, slawne "sniadanie na trawie" Maneta w nowej formie. Dobrze malujesz, hehe. Dobrze uchwycona scenka z portretami mlodych ludzi. Nawet szampan tam czeka na rozlanie...

Sympat ce déjeuner entre amis, un garçon et cinq filles! ils semble bien relax, j'aime le POV pris en hauteur qui permet d'avoir une vue complète sur tout le groupe, belle image

La première chose que je me dis en regardant cette photo, c'est que le jeune homme est bien chanceux. Une bonne bouteille de mousseux et le tour est joué. J'aime bien le point de vue choisi.

Your title is well found but I don´t see any naked ladies here... Still, a very attractively composed picture with the persons forming a circle. Also very good colours.
macjake (70519) 2014-07-01 9:41
this is sort of a different scene for you to capture, this is more so what we see from Gert :)
but thats just fine.
its funny to see how only 1 of these people have their head UP.
Now I want a pic-nic :)
sorry to hear you were disappointed by the butterflies.
enjoy your day

Excelent picknick picture, Malgo, good clear face expressions, soft-skin portraits, in fine light and colors compo.
Nice collected the moment.

Looks like a lovely picnic, and at least some kind of 'consolation prize' given your unfortunate disappointment at the Schmetterlinghaus. Maybe not so many species of butterflies, but at least plenty of different colors and looks in this group here. I must have missed the butterfly shots on FB, but I'll go look!

I wonder how aware of your camera they were, each of them seems to have struck a classical pose, and this like looking at a pantheon more than a picnic! I think the girl with flowers in her hair brings that feeling out even more. Very nice lighting on this very pleasant scene, well timed to capture this.

This is a fine photo. Of course I like it. The young people, who look remarkably neat and well-behaved, have placed themselves in a way that I could imagine you had told them where to sit. I know you didn't :-). If two of them had been kissing and hugging passionately it would have been similar to my photo from Poznan :-).

Les jeunes filles sont un peu plus habillées que dans le tableau mais il y a une certaine ressemblance. Joli moment que tu as immortalisé là.

titolo perfetto per una foto perfetta, niente da dire.
Piacevole pov, bel gruppo colorato e simpatico, ottima luce.
Se non sbaglio, ci sono troppe donne per un unico uomo...
PS non preoccuparti per gli smile, non sono così necessari.
In realtà non si tratta di un fiume, ma di un torrente, per cui le differenze tra l'acqua in estate e in inverno sono maggiori. No, non esiste uno Minore.

I think you captured butterflies alright, just of a different species here. :) A wonderful group out for a picnic on the lawn...a much more welcoming park to stop and enjoy some time with good friends and a meal. It's quite a colorful scene concentrated between the surrounding lawn, and I really enjoy how candid this appears...as you mention, they don't seem to mind your presence one bit...not a single lady is looking your direction. You must be quite sneaky. haha Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Trochę inny skład niż u Moneta :)), ale skojarzenie aż się nasuwa, lubię, gdy trawnik jest dla ludzi, a nie dla psów lub wyłączony z użytku

Lucky guy with five girls :)
Very interesting scene

Great picnic shot of the group of young girls.Excellent image quality with great clarity and sharpness. TFS.

a lovely group of young people enjoying a relaxing afternoon "sur l'herbe" in the soothing shade of the park. I like very much how you used your point of view for a comprehensive description of the scene and how the tight framing has exalted their closeness and interaction. The lighting and the colours enhance our interest and make the atmosphere delightful. It's interesting that, despite their closeness, no one is looking at any other or talking at this moment. Maybe this means that they feel really relaxed in this company (and/or hungry:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
