Après ce bon bain, je me dis qu'il a fini et je le prends une dernière fois en photo avec ses ailes mise de cette façon, je le trouvais craquant, mais il nous prépare une surprise.

Hi Thomas.
Very nice shot. I like it very much. Almost everything is excellent. POV and DOF, shutter speed, colours and perfect reproduction of white tones. I also like the saturation and contrast of the image. Reflection of the water is superb too. It seems to me, that it will be better if the swan will be located more to the right. Usually in a direction of a sight leave more spaces than behind. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Thomas,
a nice picture of a mute swan. Even it's a bit over exposed it's still nice.White birds are not easy to get right.
Details are good and the water looks nice, the colours is lovely.
Well done.

very good picture but it seems to me that you should have framed the swan a bit to the right.
this picture leaves me with the impression that it was made by chance...I am sorry if I bothered you with this critique, but it is because the swan is too much to the left...it seems that it is getting out of the picture.
if it were to the right it would have sent me the message of anticipation...you anticipate the movemens of the swan and take tke picture when and how you want...it will make believe that the swan is coming into the picture as opposed to getting out of it.
you could crop it and center the subject...
otherwise great details, great colours, great contrast
thanks and I am sorry if I offended you with my remark

Hello Thomas,
very well done, the pose is wonderful and the texture of the golden water makes a wonderful back drop for this swan. Good sharpness and nice action.

Muy bonitos los reflejos dorados en el agua que rodea al cisne. Agradable composición y buenos detalles Thomas.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Bonjour Thomas,
Quelle pose. On dirait que les cygnes veulent t'impressionner! Image intéressante par le mouvement, la forme et les merveilleux reflets sur l'eau.
Meilleures salutations

Bonjour Thomas,
C'est une belle capture de ce cygne qui fait le beau. Les détails sont assez réussis et j'aime vraiment la pose qu'il adopte. Bien vu!

Hello Thomas, good shot. You've captured the action very well here. Excellent pose you caught. I think there is some noise here that maybe you could reduce and I would prefer a little more room in front of the swan ans a little less behind, well done.
