Ya les he hecho tantas fotos a esta pareja que creo que hasta les gusta posar para mí. Como he comentado en otras tomas, esta pareja vive en estado salvaje en el rio de mi Ciudad.

Hello Ignasi,
How did you get the swans to pose like this to you? :-)
Excellent pose of a nice pair looking at the camera. Well framed with the reflection of this superb composition.


Excellent pose Ignasi...great with both birds looking to camera and in profile. Could do with straightening a bit. Best regards, Brat.

Hi Ignasi

The pose and reflection makes this a very artistic shot. I love the eye contact with you. Perfect exposure, nice POV and sharp



Hallo Ignasi
What an impressive pose of the swans you have here. The reflection in the water of both is just so remarkable. This is such peaceful scenery. The way the two swans are positioned creates the feeling of total innocence and simplicity. Thanks for sharing. It was lovely to look at.
Kind regards

Hi Ignasi, I often come and look at your pictures just for the fun of it, because they are so beautiful. This is a wonderful and beautiful portrait of this couple of swans, it is very original because we usually only see one, not two. Plus, the reflection in the water is superb. Thank you!


Hello Ignassi, wonderful composition of these Swanns, great details and perfect exposure, well done ! I did a quick workshop to straighten the picture. Thanks,


Hola Ignasi, wonderful couple, lovely composition with splendid reflections, great colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hola Ignasi.

Que buena composicion lograste con estos dos bellos cisnes y que creido se lo tienen.
