Great focus and perfect ligts. I like the white contrast. Perfect moment you find, with the parallel beaks...
Great job Henrik.

Do you live in the heaven Hendrik? These are amazing views that people like us, who live in giant poluted cities havent seen for ages. Amazing. Just beautiful. A great moment very well captured.

Hi Hendrik.
Very cute capture and very nice composition.
Thanks for sharing, best wishes.


A beautifully captured moment, nothing wrong here though I wonder if defocusing or defusing the background a little would help keep your eye on the swans.

It can't get better than this! Great moment, compo, Pov...
I can't get enough of it!
Great job

Very, very nice I like this one! So soft and touching in emotions...Sharpness, clarity and expose is perfect!



P.S Hope you don't mind I've added this to The Swan Theme!

Hallo Hendrik. Dit heet vertederend en ik hoor mijn vrouw dan van alles roepen. alle moeder gevoelens komen naar boven.
Ik heb dat niet maar vind de opname wel heel erg mooi.
groet Frans

Knap gemaakte foto. Je kan ze bijna aanraken zo echt is het. (Nikon D200 om jaloers op te zijn)

Great catch, Hendrik! The symmetry in their pose is fantastic. Great composition: the square format works perfectly here. Well done!

SUPERB.! Amazingly lovely picture, Hendrik. Excellent Swan portrait. One you can be proud of. 10 points from me.

hello Hendrik,
I have just found your gallery of fabulous swan photos. Wow--I just love this one! Great focus and lighting. I like the close crop. Such character here.
You have handled the white balance very well.
