[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These three swans (cygnus olor) came on this lake in the winter of 2005. This is a lake between hills and mountains and how they got there no one knows. Never before or since swans were seen here.
They were amazingly tame and once they saw you on the lake shore they came from wherever they were on the lake.
I took this shot of them aproaching me because it was funny how they looked at me with the same eye.

Hi Catalin ,
very nice image.
nice moment and well composed.
well done.
thanks and regards

Great capture of the moment. Without that repetitive swans, the picture would only be half of it.
Thanks for showing

Hello Catalin,

Excellent composition on this one! You did very well following the rule of thirds. The perspective is excellent with these three swans receding towards the well placed shore line. All the three swans are facing the right direction and their reflections in the water are just great!
The color range in this photo is pretty reduced and the red color in the birds' beaks add a wonderful contrast.
Exposing this scene must have been difficult since the dynamic range is so wide but you did pretty well. However there are some insignificant areas in the swans' white plumage that look a little bit OE on my display. This is just a minor point and doesn't distract from the overall beauty of your picture. Congratulations and TFS!

With Friendly Regards,

Hi Catalin,
A very fine shot with great composition and exposure! Very well done.

Regards, Peter

HI Catalin,

WOW! I really like this photo. Outstanding perspective and DOF. It is very unusual to see swans on the water with a snow covered hillside village in background. Exposure is well managed and the similar poses of the swans adds interest. A favorite!

Hi Catalin,
Great shot, it looks like some troops marching and doing the "eyes right" as they pass the general. Great timing, well seen and captured. I think a little more space to the right and less to the left might look good too, but have to say what a background, just superb. A well managed exposure and good depth of field. I'm guessing from their necks this is an adult female and two young.

Superba poza !
Un POV excelent si detalii faine!
Toate cele bune si TFS
