[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
To change a bit kind of picture: an almost abstract photo of the plumage of a swan (Cygnus olor).
Even if it seems there is no trick or special effect applied to this image, I just used the very strong contrast between the white swan's plumage exposed to direct sunlight and the dark green of the bush before whom he was installed. Posing for the plumage, the bush was very underexposed and became almost black.

Hi Phillipe
A very different photo. It is an excellent example of how light is everything to a photo. You have taken a bright white object with texture and applied light to it and shown how light can give depth, shape, and colour. I really like it. Beautifully photographed
Thanks for sharing
Best wishes

Hello Philippe,
A very good abstract image with exact fine sharp detail of the plumage of the swan. The darker BG creates an unbelievable depth. Light management was perfect.
Best regards,
