Czesc Lucjo,
a propos mojej lawiny, to nie widzialem jak schodzila, wiec trudno powiedziec, chociaz patrzac na snieg byla w miare swieza.
Twoje zdjecie jest na prawde piekne. Super kompozycja tych labedzi. Bardzo dobry balans bieli.
Bylem na filmie "czarny labadz" - swietny tak jak i to zdjecie,

Hi Lucja,

Very good shot of these two swans. Not a very common shot but very interesting.The contrast and the colors are just superb. Congrats.
Point tomorrow.


Hallo Lucja
In my personal opinion this is an excellent image. These swans are beautiful and they look so well on the snow. I have never seen swans outside the water and here you captured them on the snow. The black paws in contrast with the white feathers is really great and a lovely combination. It is an image that is very soft on the eye. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Lucja Hello, nice pair of swans shot with a really good clean image. Beautiful composition of the shot. Hello, Paul

Merhaba Lucja!
Pozlaması sıkıntılı olan beyaz renklerin ağırlıklı olduğu bir ortamda başarılı bir kare olmuş. Belki göz hizasından bakışla bir çekim yapılabilse çok daha estetik olabilirmiş. Herşeye rağmen güzel bir foto. Tebrikler...


wonderful subject and photo Lucja!
regards Nasos

Hi Lucja,

An imaginative title for an (almost) soundless couple. When I lived in Connecticut, we used to often see Mute Swans swimming. Sometimes, I would see them on land also. But, I've never seen them walking on snow. You've certainly captured them with good colours and details. The different whites, the shadows, the non-white highlights, the serene birds, all contribute to this fine image. A very pleasant and restful presentation. TFS.

Hello Lucja,
such a pretty capture in exciting pose. The softness of the colours and the beauty of the surrounding is magnificent.
Excellent job in showing the beauty and snow scenery in pleasant style.
