This is a visually stunning image.
What perfect timing and clarity!

good timing with the large stork flying down to land.
at first I thought the tree was the main focal point until i read the note.
as for the note there are lots of interesting bits in there too.

Good Morning Pavle,
Anyone who has tried to take shots of birds in flight will know how difficult this is.
The tree makes a really good initial, focal image, with its branches spreading wide to appraise the incoming bird, which then becomes the main focus, with elegant,outstretched wings and feet down, like an aeroplane landing.
Have a lovely day,
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-08-20 23:09
This is wonderful bit of wild life shot with the background serves as good sense of location, credit that your timely shot is spot on as the stork is well caught mid air about to make a landing perhaps. But the tree is a strong element adding into the whole context so smoothly and the way the branches have been made as a natural frame You managed to maintain a good amount of details whilst keeping the exposure right and excellent colour to accompany the well-chosen shooting point. Plain and simple rural scene and lots more to explore in this frame. Great write up as usual, Congrats

Good morning Paja,
excellent the snapshot with the stork to be captured the most decisive moment as flying over the dead tree.I like its placement in the frame as the superb light and colour management of the image.
Have a good day,Danos

The stork coming to town, in a fabulous descending on image. Well collected the moment, and maybe it is an indication of an early autumn.
Fine taken photo, with town houss on far side.
ourania (18532) 2013-08-21 2:09
a very nice, timely capture of the stork landing on the tree. Sharpness is impressive (in the workshop pictures as well) and the depth has allowed for a very agreeable and comprehensive context. The vertical frame is very effective and stork, tree, field and town have been arranged in it in an excellent way. The moody colours add to the special character of the image. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
jhm (127907) 2013-08-21 3:31
Also in my area see we since a few years storks, we have a big colony in Knokke-Zoute on 15 km of my home.
Also your workshop picture is pleasant to look at.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
tedesse (23996) 2013-08-21 4:12
Enjoy views of storks in the vicinity of the city! Apparently bring good luck :)
Good POV and composition, nicely framed picture. A beautiful medley in WS.
Noel_Byrne (13234) 2013-08-21 6:13
Perfect timing and such a clear image! The colors in the ground are really beautiful. Nothing makes me smile more than such a perfectly timed capture.
All the best
saxo042 (33878) 2013-08-21 7:24
Interesting picture,storks are more or less extinct here in my part of the world. A very fine capture of the big birg coming in for landing. The bare tree below is a very good part of the composition.
Kugart (1764) 2013-08-21 7:30
A very fine capture of the stork in flight above the old tree which looks so interesting in itself . Nice colours achieved on what looks to be a very dull day.
holmertz (31226) 2013-08-21 7:45
Congratulations on a very fine composition. The stork is magnificent and very well captured as it is going down for landing. The tree fills the foreground in an equally magnificent way and in the lower part we get a fine view with excellent colours of the town. This surely is one of your best photos.
Cricri (92095) 2013-08-21 8:59
Une très jolie composition, excellent rendu des couleurs, l'arbre dénudée de ces feuilles , le top avec le vol de la cigogne, super bien capturer
Romano46 (11393) 2013-08-21 10:03
complimenti per questa bella foto che unisce una bella veduta paesaggistica al volo di una cicogna.
Una foto composta in maniera eccellente e sicuramente frutto di un bel lavoro di preparazione per cogliere la cicogna nella migliore delle posizioni.
Ottima anche la nitidezza e curato il colore ed il contrasto.
Ciao e buona serata
goodwill (4879) 2013-08-21 11:54
Its such a beauty you have captured that I am amazed!! Tried to capture the birds many a times, but found myself flopped every time.
Under the given circumstances, this is a difficult composition, but I appreciate your work here, wonderfully composed, with all the elements in their respective positions.
Great job dear,
mesutilgim (72900) 2013-08-21 12:58
One of your "best"s ! Perfect pov and perfect timing.
TFS and best regards
krzychu30 (12605) 2013-08-21 13:46
the view I knew quite good when I was living in Poland.
Storks are really lovely birds.You captured this one really excellently as he comes back to your Cuprija.Superb vertical format showing us the whole aspect of the scene.Beautiful and and evocative composition!
cjmm (4479) 2013-08-21 13:51
...And in many places, storks are also associated with babies and birth. When I was a small child and many things were not so openly discussed as today, parents would say "the stork will bring you a little baby brother" (if your mother was pregnant).
I like this one very much. Birds in flight are not easy subjects, but you got it spot-on.
I enjoyed the workshop image with four different photos, but I think this one is the best.
goodfella (247) 2013-08-21 14:17
This is an excellent shot with perfect timing of the bird in the air. I have trouble getting shots like this in focus and using the correct exposure to capture the bird in the frame without blur. You have done this very well!
Thank you for sharing,
mcmtanyel (5173) 2013-08-21 15:10
In Turkey we have an old wives' tale: How much travel you will do that summer depends on in what state you see the stork the first time that spring:
If you see it flying, you'll travel a lot.
If you see it walking, you'll travel some.
If you see it stationary (standing or sitting) you'll not travel that summer.
However, we do not have old wives' tales about the last time you see a stork in the summer!
PiotrF (2380) 2013-08-21 15:36
Storks are really lovely birds!
Your picture workshop is pleasing to the eye.
Excellent composition, Sharpness and clarity .
Vasa (16612) 2013-08-21 16:23
Kao da sleće na aerodrom, a znam da Ćuprija jo dugo neće to imati. E, pa Pajo, potpuno sam zadovoljan!
Sonata11 (31199) 2013-08-21 20:27
very nice composition of architecture and stork above. Fabulously done it. Splendid colors, sharpness, clarity. I like POV and DOF as well great. I like it.
All the best,
mohammad_H (7488) 2013-08-21 23:30
Good camera angle, in a charming landscape, light and color, high quality
Excuse ,I now shooting competitions.
kato (9500) 2013-08-22 9:49
You're capturing well this scene by a good by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the white stork which extends wings and is flying in high up in the sky. It's also impressive in lonly tree on the ground, and houses with red roof in back. The stork is a bird in the crisis of extinction in Japan.
elenimavrandoni (9965) 2013-08-22 17:28
Hello Pavle, perfect time, great bird flying and I would like to see where is his nest..a magnificent natural shot and beautiful background!!
all the best
fabbs99 (11030) 2013-08-22 22:01

jurek1951 (37040) 2013-08-24 4:49
a very spectacular photo with effective composition and beautiful lights, great summer atmosphere,
Kielia (21521) 2013-08-30 7:51
these majestic birds are very rewarding subjects for the photographer and you have captured the stork excellently. The photo is very well composed. It is especially this fantastic tree that makes the image successful. My compliments!
gervaso (9247) 2013-09-04 9:05
Great shot, just at the right time to get the bird in this position, ready to land! The tree is also perfectly positioned in the image! Wonderful composition!
s_lush (16046) 2013-09-14 22:50
Very interesting information in the note, that is very well illustrated by you with such a colorful and aesthetic picture. Excellent dynamic composition with elegant foreground and architectural background, and perfect quality of the picture!
