Hi Swan, its ok. You are so beautiful.
But its so chill today, and you came to take my picture? WOW. I'm shy....so sweet. Is this pose good for you?
Oh yes dear Swan, perfect....you'll be gone now.
Yes, and will be back next year again.

Friends, story just for fun.

Hi Vandana,
I realy like your swan serie and this one is very nice with this shy look and again this perfect white. Very well done.

Such a beautiful bird and a great shot! Love the colors!

Beautiful photo of your swan...I want more though..:o) They are so very beautiful. I like the colorful leaves in the water..and great framing...I guess JohnT influences alot of us...:o)
love the photo. My swans will be out in front of my house til the lake freezes over...maybe I'll sneek down there and see if I can get a better photo..they aren't as used to people as yours It appears..
Thanks again for sharing your swans with us...
Donna :o)

Hi Vandana,

An other swan fan! I like them too and made a whole range of pictures.
Yours is nice because of the season aspect with the leaves in the water. Why don't you show some more?

My remark is that yoor colors are not natural. Maybe it is your screenadjustment. I mad for you a workshop to show. (OEPS, YOU DIASABLED THE WORKSHOP!~)

Good shot with good colors, contrast, details & sharpness.

Lovely again Vandana, they really are gracious birds and I find the white swan more so than the black. Well composed and excellent detail in the feathers. Well done and TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on 'Golden Willows - One Year On'

Hi Vandana

The swan does look embarrassed. Good graphism of white against dark. Well done & a nice end shot to the series.

Namaste Vandana
What else more can be said that was not said with your nice previous Swans..its such a great pleasure to see your latest creations..I do not know if you like classical music(I do ..some ) but Tchaikovsky sure would have liked to do business with you and your Swans for his "Swan Lake" composition.
Realy very beautifull Vandana! Its obvious you enjoy this kind of photo's too .. right ?
Keep shooting .. your doing great TFS
