The composition is superb and the details are outstanding, but it is the level of eye contact that you have achieved that makes this a real winner.
Superb comp too, of course

Ha Annick,

Prachtige pose van deze Knobbelzwaan(juv) en uiteraard weer perfect vast gelegd door u
dit lijkt me een iets oudere dan op mijn post gezien de kleur van de snavel.
scherpte, POV, kleur, pose, compo en belichting zijn van uitstekende kwaliteit

Hi Annick,
Another outstanding portrait with sharp details on this plumage and lovely colours. The water ripples/waves as OOF BF creates a fine effect and perfectly highlights the Cygnet. Wonderful lighting and exposure. Excellent POV to portray it and a precise DOF. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
