Top view of a swan. I made the picture just before sun set. The swan was swimming under a bridge so I could take a top view picture. Because there was not so much light the water became dark.

Wow, This is a lovely composition. You rarely see pictures of swans in semi graphical compos. I really like this for its colours, diagnol sharpness and POV. TFS.

Nice comming out of the corner and placed in the diagonal.
I like the changes in white of the feather from body to the head.

Hi Hendrik,
Well done. A unusual prespective of a swan.
Veri nice composition,
Best regards,

Hi Hendrick,
I agree with Jose, this perspective is unusual and welcome. Colours and diagonal are good too. This is a nice animal portrait.
I propose you an alternative in the workshop ;o)

Awesome! I love the contrast between the dark background and the swan!

And the fact, that the water became dark, no problem, the black background is great with this excellent portrait of the swan, superb colours too !

Mooie en originele invalshoek Hendrik. Alsof hij om het hoekje kijkt.

Great point of view! It's look so close! I like the emotion of calm it give!

Hello Hendrix,

Very nice shoot, the diagonal works terribly. The details on the head of this swan are great too. And the composition of the tree colors is nice too.

Sensuel, pure ... un vrai chef d'oeuvre!!!!
C'est génial... et excellente composition!!

Hoi Hendrik.

Geweldige foto. De zwaan lijkt wel een actuer, zo veel expressie in dat koppie. Grappig, ik heb ook een zwaanfoto geplaatst, ook uit Brabant en zelfs m'n 'begeleidende tekst' komt overeen ;o)

Lovely dynamic angle. It's not easy to create a really original image of a swan but that's exactly what you've achieved here.

Ik vind deze compositie heel mooi. De zwaan komt heel mooi uit tegen de zwarte achtergrond en het geeft een abstract tintje.
