Cigno con i suoi simpaticissimi piccoli.

A questa e altre foto che vedrete ha contribuito anche il mio caro amico Antonio, che spero diventi presto un Birdwatcher.
Peccato solo per la giornata molto nuvolosa.

Swan with his very nice ones.

In this and other photos that you see also helped my dear friend Antonio, who I hope will soon become a birdwatchers.
Too bad for the day very cloudy.

Hi Vanni,

What a super shot of that Mute Swan with her little cygnets! Very pleasant, natural lighting. You've captured them with excellent colours. Your focusing and DOF are good, for the most part; you could have benefited from an aperture that was closed a bit more, however. I suggest that, in a similar situation, you bump up the ISO to 800, so that you can retain the fast shutter, while closing down the aperture a little for increased DOF. Note that you'll probably need to do a little noise reduction with the higher ISO. TFS.

Regards,
John

Hello Vanni,
A delightful capture of a mother Mute Swan and her newly hatched brood of cygnets. The POV and composition in the natural reedy habitat is presented with good DOF , sharpness and fine lighting to make a fine image.
Thanks and best regards,
Ciao,
Ivan

ciao
bellissima immagine, i piccoli di cigno sono sempre stupendi.
Forse il fatto che ci sia stato nuvoloso almeno aiuta nella gestione dei bianchi sulle penne degli adulti

un saluto

Matteo

Good shot Vanni. Great dept of field, natural colors and well preserved white balance indeed. Charming family story indeed!

Bonjour Vanni,
Adorable réunion familiale que tu nous montres dans son environnement naturel. J'aime beacoup les différentes poses des petits, chacun a dàjà son caractère!
De belles couleurs naturelles aussi. Les journées sans soleil sont plutôt positives pour le photographe.
Un grand merci
Anne

Molto bene Vanni. La profondità di campo mi sembra ottimale così come la gestione della luce ( poca per via delle condizioni climatiche) sul bianco di mamma cigno. Ottimi sharp e dettgalio. Le piccole pesti ne creano di movimento! Gradevole anche l'ambientazione.

Roberto

Ciao Vanni, non ti lamentare per la giornata nuvolosa che dalle mie parti tra un po' si chiede un passaggio sull'arca di Noè, delizioso quadretto di famiglia ben ambientato, splendidi riflessi e bei colori naturali, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Vanni,
Lovely capture with amazing details and superb focus.
It is a very nice composition.
Marius.
