Cok guzel bir kompozisyon.
Je n'en suis pas sur mais il me semble qu'il est un Héron strie (Butorides striatus)
Very good portait of swan.The details, colors and DOF are good.Congratulations for composition.
I did a workshop that I hope you like it.
Very well composed and exposed. The colors,lighting and DOF are excellent. Congratulations!
I think the bird seriously gave you a pose:-)
Very impressive landscape, beautiful colors.
I agree with Pieter/Saner, about the horizon.
Great composition. I like the coulours and lighting.
Did you use orange filter?
You're right, the lighting on the beak is a bit much and over-exposed white areas where is naturally lost the details.
I'm not agree to using a flash at a zoo. In my opinion, it's not good idea. Because, I think sometimes it chage the colours and always some areas in the picture will be over-exposed with the birds or animals who has a contrast colors.
So, I suggest you to using a tripod at the condition under wich you have a difficult lighting.
When you go at a zoo, don't forget to bring your tripod! Prepare your tripod and wait until the bird takes the position that you want, so shot it.
It's important to be patient for taking a good image.
I hope it's comprehensible my write, because I have problem with english.
