The myth of the Swan Maiden is one of the most widely distributed and at the same time one of the most beautiful stories ever evolved from the mind of man.

Hi Lenka,

Also impressed by the beauty of the swans?
Good picture!
Maybe you shood correct the colors a litle bit. It looks to warm.

Best regards,


P.S. Youa are invited to visit my swan themes!

Your Swan series looks good to me, Lenka.
Very articulate image from an effective point of view.
Water trickling off the bird's beak and creating ripples on the pool's surface is very well captured.
So is the reflection of the Swan.
The colouring of water acts as a fine background for the white bird.
