Hi Kona,
This image has a high aesthetic value, very beautiful image. Not very clear of the swans, but it doesn't matter if people see this as a work of art.

Beautiful composition with eerie light and colors.
Very artistic presentation of the bird silhouette against this unusual BG.

"So good, so nice"

Hi Kona.

Good composition and lovely colors.Shadows spreading all over the photo makes it a fine one.TFS.

Hello Kona,
A well composed image with great colours!
The scenery has the usual dreamlike effect, where the mist adds to the mystery!

Hi Kona

This is simply splendid! The moment in which you managed you capture these beautiful creatures gives the entire picture a magical or mythical feeling. Great work!
I think technicaly the shot is impecable, the exposure is fantastic, the colors breathtaking and the composition superb.
The only extremely small nit i could find is that the focus is a bit soft on the swans.
Even so, a simply superb photo.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Kona, a nice mystical shot. Love these early morning shots, reminds me that i should start getting up early to get these foggy shots in. Well done.

Hi Kona,
Your swam photos are all really beautiful and deserve all credits. I love the color tone created by the rising sun and the morning dew. The almost black silhouttes are beautiful.

Hi Kona
You´re the master of the swans phots :)
great lights and "mood".
I could like to see the swans in a bit more focus, but I agree that in this case, it really don´t matters..
great !

Wonderful colours and light. I love the swans emerging from this golden fog



Hio Kona,
Picture is pictorially looks very pleasing. But compositionally, the swans , if looking to the right, would have been nice. Now it is ok., not good. But the lighting and exposure is very nice.TFS
