L'immagine è molto bella e tenera, però il bianco del cigno è troppo sparato e infastidisce.
Questa è solo la mia modesta opinione, non te la prendere, io ho fatto di peggio.

Hello Sergio,
The major problem here is the over exposure
of the white color, see how bright it its
Black & white is beautiful, but you need to
be carefull with the exposure.. but yet the mother
swan and child is a very good portrait..

The picture is simple but attractive.Digital colour conversion never gives a good result , unless you put a correct exposure and expart in Photoshop.

Nice composition. A very difficult subject for good exposure -- with the great contrast between the dark water and the bright swan you have to choose which way to go. I would myself have chosen to go darker to capture details on the swan. It is possible in editing to recover some detail from underexposed dark areas, but not from burnt white ones.

Hi Sergio,
Nice to find you here as well!
Beautiful shot of mother and chick... And B&W works well here...Concerning overexposition, yes, it's true, but I took this shot as an "artistic" view rather than a documental one... Marta
