[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Todays, I went into the forest in order to make a picture of any roe deer. I wanted to unveil my new Sigma lens.
Unfortunately, I found nothing to photograph in the woods.
So I decided to go around a pond I know. I was thinking: I will try to get picture of a colored bird.
Unfortunately, I found nothing to photograph on this pond. Excepted this swan. It's a little compensation.
Maybe, next time i will do better. In the meantime, let me show you this picture as to unveil my new Sigma lens: 150mm sigma 2.8. :)

A little compensation, but what a compensation!
you really got the mouvement at the right time, the only disturbing thing is the background swan, but however, I'm impressed, especially the BW.


tres beau

Hi Fontan,
Great movement you've captured and an interesting crop. I wouldn't have thought of using black and white but it works very well. Great work.

Hello Fontan,
This is a great action capture. Very dynamic pose and you've got a good POV of the bird..
A pleasure to view :)
PS - Nice lens too ;)
