"Leda and the Swan is a motif from Greek mythology in which Zeus came to Leda in the form of a swan. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus, while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta"

Boa tarde Henri,

Lovely swan in a great pose.
Excellent shot with beautiful colors and excellent contrast and light.
The note is very good too.


Bonjour Henri,
Beau cigne, bien captur par le derriere. Le jeu de ombre, tonalit駸 et lumi鑽es sur les plumes c'est excellent. Tranquilit sur les eaux nous donnent sentiments de paix et tendresse.

Hi Henri,
A nice POV to capture this white swan from the rear while including its head and the shape of its orange beak. Nice ripples in the water with that silver lining. Quite a good exposure on the white plumage although a little bit of OE can be noticed.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bonjour Henri,
C'est vrai, ils 騁aient assez difficiles, ces dieux de la mythologie, un peu bizarres, mais leur histoire a travers des si鐵les, des mill駭aires sans prendre de rides...
Ce cygne est superbe, la pose est belle, il regarde l'eau, la scrute et tu as su tr鑚 bien captur ce joli moment de fa輟n artistique...

A well caught shot from a swan with nice contrasts and clarity, Henri!
Good management of light and exposure with natural colors of this lovely bird.
Well chosen POV and nice DOF you got here.


Best wishes,

  • Great

A very interesting POV of this swan not often seen. Subtle colors from the soft, diffused light portrays this elegant creature with a fine composition using DOF to advantage here.
