Today the lady swan took a break from breeding for a refreshing bath with a lot of splashing.
Within a few days I expect the signets.

Hi Hendrik, my neighbour in the gallery,

I checked out a lot of images from those linked in your note, so I must say you seem in quite good friendship with swans. :) Beautiful photo collection, and this shot isn't an exception. Probably just a touch overexposed, or the shutter speed was just a bit slower than the optimal (just a personal opinion, of course), otherwise quite an unusual swan photo which is so pleasant to look at.

If I can ask for 2 small things from you, these are the following:
1. Please upload the exif data with the photo.
2. Forget this x-large white frame, because it's quite disturbing to the viewer, who wants to see more of the photo and less from the canvas. Above this, the huge white frame doeswn't add anything extra, or anything more to the image.

Tfs, best regards, László

I agree with László ( who is one of the best here in the site): this large white frame disturbe a lot the viewer.
