To all of you!

This swan was a perfect reason to test the zoom of my new camera. This one is fully zoomed in. A little hard sometimes to find were the swan was if I moved to much, but I got it!
I've still got a lot to learn about the camera so if you have tips please let me know!

Thanks for visiting.

Greetings Simone

Hi Simone,

great 200mm zoom, you did it! Colours and lights also work in a very ballanced way...

Tips? i think the photo is good enough so the loud frame is not necessary, maybe a more modest one would improve the result.

Happy 2o1o and keep on taking great photos Simone.

Hi Simone,
A cute swan posing in this fabulous sunshine with ground covered with snow.
An adequate subject to create such a lovely New Year's greeting card.
Very sharp image and accurate sharpness.
Nice PP work in the framing.

***A Happy New year to you***

Hello Simone!
Happy New Yera 2010!
Beautiful capture and nice frame!
Best regards!

Hoi Simone,
Happy New Year to you too. Wish you and Alex all the best for 2010!
A fresh start of the new year for this swan, which you captured perfectly. Although I'm not sure about the white frame (it appears to me a bit too bright) a fine image, excellent sharp and well composed. Great start of 2010 here on TL!

N.B. Great intro picture! Made by Janneke?

Hoi Simone,
Leuke nieuwjaarskaart ! Jij natuurlijk ook een gelukkig nieuwjaar ...
Leuke eerste resultaten van je nieuwe camera. Zelf heb ik zo'n 10x zoomertje, maar daarmee valt het al niet mee om het goed stil te houden. Jij hebt 20x geloof ik.
Mooie plaat. Ietsje te donker t.o.v. de rand, maar verder mag ie er zijn !

Maravillosa felicitacion muy original y con una gran ediccion y presentacion de esta ave sobre la nieve buena nitidez color y encuadre ,enhorabuena

buen trabajo
un saludo
buen aņo

Hi Simone,
Een start van het jaar 2010 ... 'sterke' met deze macro uitzonderlijk.
Ik wens met heel mijn hart een warm HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Een nieuw jaar met gezondheid, geluk, zowel voor u en uw familie.
Ik wil u bedanken voor uw bezoek op mijn galerie en leuke reacties die je hebt geschreven.
Nou Warmste groet,

Happy New Year Simone,

I do like the zoomed and isolated focusing of the swan. The image is sharp and the exposure is balanced. Yes enjoy experimenting with your new cam and hope to see more postings. The snow on the f/g appears like clouds. Cheers

First thanks for your visit :)

Very nice swan, perfect capture, congrats !

Marylou ;)

Haha....dit is dus die zwaan-die-je-niet-kon-vinden....!
Goeie close-up hoor!! Lekker scherp nog steeds!
Je frame is niet mijn favoriet bij deze foto, maar ik snap wel waarom je die gekozen hebt.

Fijne avond!!


Mooie foto, goed scherp

Ciao Simone,

Happy new year to you, even if behind schedule.
Your new one zoom is sure good, to judge from this image.
