[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A young Cygnet who certainly wasn't Camera Shy, whilst his siblings just swam away he/she posed for the Camera, and I must say the he/she is certainly photogenic with a little attitude thrown in.

Hi Hiliary
What a sweet little swan! You caught him just right. I can almost see curiousity on his face. Great Job.

Hi Hilary
Good portrait shot. Good colours, sharpnes, light and POV.
Well done Hilary


Ho visto le tue foto e noto che ti piace fotografare i cigni. Questa mi sembra molto bella peccato che si veda troppo l'efetto maschera di contrasto,perņ complimenti per il taglio e il soggetto. ciao gigicacco

Wonderful portrait shot, all fluffy and cute! Beautiful pastel blue background, the fine water droplets on head and feathers are adding a beautiful touch to the harmonious composition. Beautiful galerie of these wild swans.

Very nice!

It's interesting how an impression of a photograph can change depending on the lighting. I think if this was lit from the front, I'd think... cute Cygnet.

But being backlit, the impressions are different - I think fuzzy, and fluffy!

The darks are a little grainy, but still - very nice image!
