This is the same swan like my elder picture "I feeling sad".
I took a lot of picture of it and I really like this one I can explain but the colours the reflection adn the drop on his mouth.
Hope you like it too
regards Toba

Hello Tobias,

Splendid with the drop at her beak, very nice position of the swan, also the good light between her feathers.
A pity for it a few light, but through the backlight become this very difficult.
Very well done.

Best regards,

Hi Tobias.
Wonderful scene and attractive pose of the beautiful swan. I like wide DOF and level of sharpness of the entire image and bird. I like excellent timing, framing and composition. Only image of the bird is underexposed a bit. I think it would be better use partial (spot or similar) metering mode for shooting so contrast scene. My best wishes and thanks for sharing.
P.S. I am always very pleased with your nice warm comments. Many thanks.

Hello Tobias,
This is a beautiful image of light and shadows displayed!
good reflection well captured with exposure and focus
well done

A fine shot Tobias...I thought perhaps you had gone....but am very glad to see you are back at it..this shows your true interest...sometimes things happens that way...

Hello Tobias,
This fine effect from the backligh makes the swan stand out well!
A well composed presentation with fine details, the pleasant reflection adds to the atmosphere...

Beautiful swan in the very moody atmosphere, I like it.
the lighting in the water the blue glow on the feather. It very soft and gentle, a moment of tenderness capture beautifully. TFS

Hi Toba,
A fine capture of this mute swan. The capture has come up well although BG light. Excellent composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Tobias. You are talented for such a young age and your gallery proved that. The capture of this swan is excellent in sharpness and clarity. One thing that I might do differently here is trying to keep the reflection in the frame and tighter crop at the back of the bird. Excellent job and best regards. Jusni

Hello Tobias,
This is a beautiful capture of the Mute Swan. I like the backlight and the sharp details. A beautiful light effect on the water too. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Dear Tobias,
I have always found Swans to be graceful creatures. They have a dream like feeling to them. And looking at your beautiful picture I think i am not wrong. such a serene picture!! the quality of light, the reflection, the clinging drop to its beak, everything adds to it dream like quality. ave you seen Barbie's Swanlake movie? Reminds me of it.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture,
Will be back with smileys :)

Hi Tobias

I like the backlighting and the graceful feel to the shot. He does have a sorrowful look. Very lovely



Hello Tobias.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.

Hi Tobias,
Pleasing image, I like the POV @ 45 degrees from the front. The droplet at the beak adds well. The lights direction was not in your favor, a bit UE from this side..
Not perfect, but few things in life are.
