[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Capture a shot of this Swan while visiting a park. The sun was high and getting the shot was tough. Had to set the exposure (EV) -1.03 in order to keep from losing the detail.

Wellcome Cecilia!
Nice picture, to bad you didn't have green foliage rather than brown earth. The mood would have been warmer, but you have been lucky and talented to take such a nice shot of the swan. I fully agree with Gregory, you had an excellent control on your exposure and you have excellent detail in the white feathers. Show us more like this one and TFS.

Hi cecilia,
Phantastic Start .
Warming welcome at trek Nature.
Very beautiful colours & sharpness.
your Pelikans also salute your good jos.
Well done &TFS.

Hello Cecilia

Great work. Nicely composed. Excellent sharpness and detail. Well done!

Good focus on the swan, and well seperated from the smoothed background. Love the warm colours contrasted with the white of the swan.
