Yesterday just before sunset I made this one. It is the same swan on an other location.

Specially for those who got lost in the sparrow tree.

Hi there Hendrik, he's a startling swan, so photogenic! Excellent POV looking down on him. He is a bit OE on his head, but his pose is great. TFS

Back in swan land. I understand it. Simple in colours strong in lines. Powerful radiation of the swan.
Makes great photos and you prove it.

Dag Hendrik,
You archieve a wonderful graphic appeal in this shot.Very nice how the diagonal line of the swan cuts this into a Black and a White half and the lightspot on itīs head is a good detail.

How proud is she! Proud of his beauty. And you use an angel to complete her proud! Very wel done Hendrik.

The black is excellent and the swans head is perfectly fitted between the two two dominant colours. Beautiful work.


You've captured the grace of the swan in this simple portrait. Well done. I may have been tempted to crop a little bit more off the left, still leaving space for the swan to move into but creating more tension across the frame.

Great "portrait" (of swan) photo, it's sharp, clean, well balanced... nothing to add! :) Amazing!

Mooie stevige compositie weer Henk. Geometrie in de natuur; altijd moeilijk te vinden; jouw manier van croppen maakt het mogelijk; mooi werk.

Hallo Hendrik. Zoals reeds eerder gezegd ze is van grootte klasse, ook nu weer erg mooi en foto geniek.

Heel mooi Henk !100%

I like here the division in diagonal of white and black parts! With in the middle the neck and head in original posture jungling with the sun! Shurely the one of the ballet :)

Hallo Henk. Zeker is zeker .. je zwaantjes doen het altijd goed, (Zelfs KLM denkt er zo over )
Majestic shot
Groet uit het Haagsche ..John

Hi Hendrick, the swan is so graceful, the colours and sharpness are so perfect, the composition superb... conclusion: straight to my favourites.


PS how do you create that wide white border?

Very nice shot Hendrik. Great composition and contrast...

lovely on the dark background and the right ammount of light beautiful portrait


Back again...I'm staying here all day.I'll be back after lunch. To Peruse more of these swans.
