Bonjour Jose,
Bravo pour cette magnifique image de ce cygne majestueux! La pose est formidable, on a l'impression qu'il va sortir de l'image. Parfaite netteté aussi et la lumière est très bien gérée aussi.
Bien vu!

Hello José,
Great timing to show such a fine wing position from a frontal POV. This Whooper Swan probably came to Portugal from Sweden, where they are quite common in the breeding season.
I wonder if the swan has a piece of fishing line fastened on its bill?
Thanks for sharing this and have a great weekend,

Hello Jose,
An inspiring capture with great details and sharpness.Beautiful light and very perfect exposure.Composition is balanced and selective POV.
TFS and my regards,_Joy

Hi José,
Incredible photo of a whooper swan, a moment perfectly frozen into the pic with using the right shutter speed. Great color tones and nice composition - a majestic image overall. Bravo.
Best regards, László
