Nice shot Christian, very good details and light.

Un instant unique capturé sur la "pellicule"!
Point de vue intéressant, un netteté superbe, une exposition très bien maitrisée (et avec autant de blanc, c'est loin d'être évident) et des couleurs bien saturées.
L'arrière-plan est lui aussi remarquable (une eau d'un telle clarté n'est pas si commune).
Je me souviens de nos début sur TN, et tu progresse d'une façon remarquable.
Merci de partager de telles images avec nous.

I love it Christian,

Lovely swan and cygnet Christian.
Haven't seen a fungi shot for a while...I guess its the wrong season for them there,huh?
Our fungi season is just beginning...though I can find them all year round in the forest ;)

jolie photo tant coté emotionnel que photographique.
le fait que l'eau soit foncé renforce encore plus l'impact du blanc ;)
jolie clichet .

C'est tellement mignon. Ce n'est pas du tout un Ugly Duckling. Quelle chance d'avoir pu réuissir une photo paraille. Elle est magnifique.

Superbe présentation de cette mère et son petit poussin. Un belle éclairage avec beaucoup de détails. J'aime bien la couleur de l'eau et sa netteté.

Félicitation et bonne journée.

Very good composed shot!
Cygnet is very pretty and a big bonus:) POV and black BG perfect...TFS

This is a beautiful image Christian. The dark BG has really enhanced these beautiful creatures. It has a wonderful atmosphere to it. You have handled the whites extremely well. Fantastic work. Well done!

Nice shot Christian,
Good details and nice composition. The clear water is a nice touch to this shot.
Thanks for posting

Superbe angle de prise de vue, Christian.
Aucune zone 'brûlée' ce qui n'est pas évident étant donnée l'abondance de blanc.
Une photo de laquelle se dégage une belle émotion.
Merci bien!

Beautiful shot.. The water is so clear, you can see the rocks. Well done

Wonderful shot of this tender scene. Technically excellent with outstanding composition and exposure. The juxtaposition of the mother and the baby convey the vulnerability of youth (small size) and the protective nature of motherhood (proximity). A photo with powerful emotional impact.

So cute and elegant all at the same time! Love the contrast between the white swans and the dark water. A little blown-out white areas, but what can you do? Nice job. -Jenn

Out of all the shots .. I like this one the most ... A brilliant shot !!

Thanks for sharing !!

nice family pic, TFS Ori
