[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear Trekkers,

I dedicate this photo of mute swan (Cygnus olor) to our fellow member mate Asbed (CeltickRanger), a master of unusual kind of bird photography. Compared to his images, this one's much more simple - I just experimented with the "model" looking out of the frame than into it. This is also the 1st photo on TrekNature ever done in Westmeath county of Ireland.

Photo: taken in shutter priority mode, in Athlone city, on the side of River Shannon. A scene like this should be photographed almost anywhere, so I upload a workshop with the same stone and the same swan, but with characteristic buildings of the city in the background.

Asbed, and everyone else, I hope you'll like this swan photo, even if the species itself is very much known by everyone.

Hi Laszlo,great idea to dedicate a ic to our friend Asbed,the most famous bird-catcher of TN,especiallu in flight.eheheh...beutiful capture of this swan,very common everywhere and always friendly whit the photographers,a nice composition and an excellent quality as usual.Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Nice effort (along with WS) to relate the subject to its surroundings rather than to isolate it as a mere specimen, Laszlo.
Thus, in your picture, the Swan and the Stone are equally important subjects that go well with each other and contribute to the composition as a whole.
I have tried something similar in my latest picture.
Regards.

Hello László

Sorry my comment/critique will be long !

Merci beaucoup for your dedication and kind words,
I will start with the WS photo : Ireland it is
a beautiful country that I would love to visit
one day, they have a lot of woodcocks another
bird that I love and that I search with my
pointing dogs, Ireland's woodcocks are the
« Eurasian » and in your country also we can
find them, our woodcocks here are the « American ».

Now critique for the 2 photos, the scenery
of your photo on the WS it is very beautiful,
and what a big change when you come on this
photo or you have not view the one of the WS,
you don't think on this photo that there is
houses in the background outside the photo !

Now you did an excellent composition of this
Mute Swan here on this photo, you did well
László to break the rule, because in reality
for me you did not break the rule, you are
showing us from where the bird is coming,
and who said that the free space will only be
in front of the bird/subject and not behind !

But that big rock László is changing all and
it is that, that is doing the composition
rule is not broken, for me the rock being
with the swan part of the main subjects
is why you did an excellent composition
and with having the rock and the swan
diagonally framed in the image it adds
dynamism to the photo, and you obtained
great details of the white plumage, TFS

Merci again for your dedication László.

Hi Laszlo.
Nice picture and nice dedication. I hope Asbed will be pleased. I like the subject a lot, its symmetry on main diagonal which balances the composition perfectly. I also am impressed with delicateness of swan plumage reproduction as well as excellent details of the whole scene and vivid colours. Excellent job. TFS and compliments.
Alexei.

Hallo Laszlo
Thanks for sharing this experimented swan photo as part of a dedication to Asbed who rightfully deserves it so much. The image is beautiful and although you say we see swans many times on the gallery this one is special in its own right. I love the strong colours in the scenery. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Thanks for sharing a beautiful picture of a swan. And you have used the surrounding very well. The amount of light is just splendid.

Ciao Laszlo

Hello Mr.Laszlo,
The lonely rock and the mark on water(by the Swan)made this picture attractive and a stunning look.

Beautiful blue water and white Swan---looking splendid.
Thanks for sharing your experimental shot with excellent description,
Kind regards,
Srikumar

Czesc Wladek,

Have a nice weekend,

Hello Laszlo,
a nice dedication to our friend Asbed.
A rule-breaker! ;-) yes it sure is, the swan is soon gone out in middle of nowhere. :-)
Sometimes it's ok to break some old rules. In this case I don't know but of course it's personal.
Well exposed, accurate WB and good sharpness make this picture fine.
Well done, mf.

Regards
Gert
