Coffee Break is over and it is time to come back in show halls.

Now we are at the Footwear Section of the exhibition where the Young Sawn demonstrates the new model of shoes.

As you can see this model of shoes is produced from natural elastic materials, the jackboot well run all over a leg and is well looked.

They are suitable in any weather and any season. In the winter, it is warmly in them. In summer, it is cool. These jackboots do not soak through even in water.

They have delicate neutral practical coloration.

In addition, this model possesses the heightened wear resistance. It can serve you faithfully during all life.

You will feel in it comfortably and during long pedestrian walk, both during voyages, and during prolonged flights.

In a word,
Highly Recommended.

Hi Alexei,

A wonderful Swan in a marvelous pose! Excellent natural colors and beautiful details. The face is wonderful and she seems to be taking her modeling in stride. I'm afraid I don't need her footwear here in the desert. What a great idea this fashion show is!

Superb sharp image, good details and use of the light! She is posing beautifully! Her expression is one of contentment!

Hi Alexei

Hahaha...I just loved your note!!!! :)))))
And think about the coincidence: i was actually thinking about getting a new pair of boots for hiking these days :) Now i know what to look for. But do you know what brand they have? Are they Adidas, Nike or something else? :))))

A splendid shot again from you my friend, one in which you prove again the impeccable sharpness of this lens.
Excellent timing here and very good exposure all over the scene.
The colors are also gorgeous and the DOF is perfect!

Bravo and TFS

I love it when they do this. He still looks quite young and hasn't come into all of his adult feathers yet. Lovely light, good focus and excellent POV

Hola Alex.
Una bonita serie esta que has estado publicando estos días.
En ente caso una estupenda nitidez hace resaltar los buenos detalles de este "modelo".
Saludos amigo, JL.

Hi Alexei,

I like your timing here, it's funny and a beautiful image at the same time. Good sharpness, beautiful colours and light.
And a very interesting note too.

Greetings, Nel

Hello my friend

HA, ha, ha - hwat a funny little story. Just the shoes I like - I must have such a pair. The will be perfect for a hike in nature just now:-0). Are they made of leather or some kind of rubbe - or may be swan skin.

Very nice picture Alexei and excellent timing - even if it is a little luck too. Very good handling of the light not burning the white parts and though showing the very soft colours of this young bird. Very good focus and sharpness with nice details in the plumage.

All over a very nice picture to look at. Well done my friend.

Hello Alexei, well composed shot, very good management of the light, well done, thanks!


Lol! This is funny Alexei! You often do allusion to fashion in your pictures; do you have anything to do with this business? You had great timing to capture this elegant pose and I like those colors and exposure a lot! Shutter speed and choice of aperture brought out the best from this great capture! Well done!

hehehe! Very funny picture dear Alexei! And I do not know why I overlooked it before :)
Title is simple fantastic, and - in my opinion - it keeps the attention! I am really impressed because of timing! I can not believe that it was possible to photograph in such way this bird!
Best greetings,

Hi Alexei,
a very fine picture and of course a great and funny note too.
The picture is well composed with a fine POV.
I like the light and exposure too.
Well done, my friend.

Hello Alexei,
What makes this one very special is the pose, and your title of course..
You have excellent detail/DOF. Along with the fine POV and natural looking color, very nice. A well managed exposure too, it looks like the light was tricky here.
Highly Recommended! :)

Ciao Alexei,
bellissimo momento di cattura e simpatica ironia nel titolo, eccellenti POV e DOF, super la definizione del piumaggio, splendida luce con bei riflessi e magnifici colori.
