Eh... ma ti viene mossa, però! E' proprio il caso di usare il monopiede! ;-)

Grâce à un tel appareillage, il va pouvoir tout savoir sur les pigeons! ;) Amitiés, Christian

Thank you all, Greta, Christian, Dida, Ali Raza, Stathis; I'm glad you enjoyed this photo... it is my favorite of my trip to Vienna.

Best regards from Italy, Paolo.

Fantastica. Semplicemente fantastica. Stra-like e stra-YS

Piace anche a me, Enrico: è la mia maniera di burlarmi di certi fotografi che considerano la lunghezza dell'obbiettivo uno status simbol. :)

... ma attenzione a non sporcare l'obbiettivo ! ;-)

Ciao Doug, bentornato tra noi. Paolo.

In teleobiettivo dello zoom tutte le cose sono possibile-ma è un modo costoso proteggere una camicia, eh?

Mille grazie, Maestro!

You're absolutely right, Doug. A more economical solution would be to put a filter in front of the telephoto lens... :)

Cheers, Paolo.

Certainly, Paolo--and who does not? Only those who have spent all their money buying a three-foot-long lens which they do not think to mount on a tripod, either . . . . What is the Italian word . . . pazzo . . . .
