[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a cygnet I managed to photograph alone. The rest of the family were all around, and close, but this one just stood out from the crowd for a pose. I managed to get within an arms length which felt so nice. The parents kept a close eye on me though.

he's beautiful and seems to know it, unlike the one in the story (ugly duckling).
I am amazed you were able to get so close, the geese we have around here (closest thing to a swan I suppose) would never let that happen although I always try (to get a shot like yours)

Magnifique Paul

Nice and cute picture, Paul.
Little tight cropped IMO. Good details ,nice colours and good POV.
Well done.

Boa foto para começar.

Algumas dicas:

- Faça uso do workshop.
- Coloquem sempre mais de 4 linhas em NOTAS. Isso habilita dar pontos pelos membros, ou seja habilita o USEFUL!

Very nice cygnet Paul. You framed it perfectly before he ran away and you managed to get a good close-up and DOF. Great definition of the coat. Take care, Yan

Very cute baby cygnet, he looks like a plush toy :) And the very good moment you've got him! Colors are also great!
BR, Marina
