Hi Ruud,
This is just fantastic!
What a warm atmosphere in this lovely Winter shot.

Helemaal goed Ruud,alles zit en staat op de juiste plaats,zelfs die zwanen kijken de goeie kant op.
(meestal steken die kudtbeesten de kop in het water);]]


Hello Ruud,an idyllic winter scene.
The sunlight is superb as it shines behind the trees and shows their outlines perfectly.
The swans complete the composition.
Beautiful colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

It's a wonderful shot and full of atmosphere, Ruud.
I love the light and the two swans, just fantastic, thanks my friend.

Hi Ruud
All I can say is GREAT
Light is beautiful

Hello Ruud!

What a lovely and beautiful shot it is! Really very beautiful scene in view. The pair of those ducks are very attractive and placed very well in the frame. Very nice details and focus but do not you think the sky in the BG is little OE, what if you had reduced the ISO... Just a suggestion, though I am very junior and inexperienced. I would like to know.

TFS, indeed lovely and pleasant POV with a good PP work.


Hi Ruud
remarkable winter scene.
well seen, composed and presented.
fascinating light and tones.
nice reflections.
