Sharp focus and pleasing composition of the central subjects against the blurred distant departing flock catch and draw the eye! The golden glow set by time of day is a very welcomed bonus! Congrats on a marvelous recording!

Behind The Lens

Location
Linum is a small village 40 km west of Berlin, where the cranes come every fall to gain a little weight, before they continue their journey to Spain.
Time
It was in the early evening in the fall.
Lighting
I took this photo at ISO 2500 at f/4,5; 1/5,000
Equipment
Camera:Nikon D800 Lens:AF-S VR Nikkor 600mm f/4G ED Tripod
Inspiration
I love this time of the year, when the cranes come, September to November. The light can be so soft and warm during this time. The cranes are the birds of happiness and a long life. The "trumpeting" noise, they makes me happy, every year.
Editing
I did a little sharpening in lightroom.
In my camera bag
Well, it depends very much on what I intend to do. When I go in the summer for a walk I always take my Nikon D4 and a Sigma Apo 120-400mm lens and my AF-S Micro Nikkor 105 mm f/2.8 on My Nikon D800. Whenever possible I take my 600mm lens along. My favorite lens, but a little heavy.
Feedback
Patience. It takes lots of patience to find the cranes, to get close enough, when the light is beautiful. Patience, a long lens, good light. That is all that takes.
