Superb image, FG is a perfect 10, I wish I could give the same note to the BG, the slurpy blur, a common ,,two thumbs down,, in digital imagery ... Composition, momentum and lightning does not get any better ...

Nice colours and a pleasing composition, well done.

Great shot very warm colors, It could have been good to get the full reflection and to choose another frame.
Well done

Nice image. The colour of the water is outstanding. IMO too much background. The brightness at the top is distracting. Have posted a workshop.

Hi Pedro - I know what you are talking about - same in Poland - dysthymia time. Your photo brings us sunlight. I love it.

Nice capture Pedro. I have done a workshop which I will post. I hope you don't mind. I think a little cropping at the top would make this shot excellent. Beautiful colours
Well done

Very nice Pedro
Great colours. If you crop it, it will be a very good picture.
Pam and Willie did a very good WS to show.
Well done.

Lovely Ugly Duckling on a golden pond Croesus would have loved. Perdo, consider cropping off the top, where the other, OOF swans are, and see the improvement oi the composition and visual impact.
We have sun everyday all day, and no rain, can we swop some sun for your rain?

This is a real poster image. The Exposure and composition is excellent.Very well done.

Thanks for posting

This is a really beautiful photo. Very out of the ordinary with the red water. Good pose on the duck as well. I can not imagine how it must be with so little sun. And we keep on complaining about the heat and little rain in this part of the world.

Hi Pedro!

This is a very fascinating photo. Very neat. I love the sharpness of the subject and the way it is placed on the frame. The color of the water works well in the photo. Maybe you can crop it a little on the top. But I still love it anyway. Definitely a favorite! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful colors. Tell me, on what the water is reflecting??? I say by the red color.


Very beautiful photo, colours are amazing.

Pedro, great colors on this poetic and hot picture.



Splendides couleurs ! La lumière est vraiment idéale, je regrette juste que le cygne soit si centré.

Wonderful colors, great positioning and catch of the Swan's neck position, even strengthened by the blurred background. I like the framing effect you used, but it is catching the head of one of the birds in the background. Therefore, I believe if you could use another frame and save the head, would even be better.

Grt shot!! The colours and posture of the are beautiful.
