The eye contact on that swan is wonderful, Christian. The sharpness of the details is very impressive. I like the sharp contrast of the white against the deep blue. Well done and TFS. : )

It's a beautiful mute you have caught. Good details, nuce colours and well composed. I like the POV too. IMO slightly OE.
Very well done.
I had plans to post a similar today;-))

Lovely shot Christian!
Colours are great, POV and composition perfect.
The feathers are slightly burned, but you can hardly ever find a photo of swan with perfect exposure. This one is very good.
I like the photo very much.
VERY WELL DONE & TFS

C'est sympa que tu as pu poster ce beau cygne. Magnifiques couleurs, jolie position de sa tête et j'aime bien les goutelettes d'eau sur ses plumes.

What a lovely and demure pose this swan has for you, Christian!
Superb details, colors, lighting, and POV and eye connection.
I especially like the sharpness of the water drops on this wonderful portrait.
Well done and thank you.

Another beautiful swan that I've missed for the swan day, as you were the first on to post 1/4 swan pics on november 9 :-)
La pose est superbe, on dirait même que le cygne te fait la cour !!!
Hi Taz, you and Gert have both posted great Mute Swan photos. Excellent capture, and the swan contrasts so well with the wonderful blue water of Lake Annecy.
Did I tell you that my son named his boat after Annecy? We all had a wonderful holiday there, and he and his wife have stayed there a few times now.
