The Republic of Belarus was the last (10-th) foreign country I visited this summer. Although I was only in one of seven regions of Belarus, Homyel Voblast, I enjoyed this part of my trips very much. This picture was taken from a bridge over the so called Swan Lake, situated in the park around the palace of Homyel, the Belarusian second largest city.

What a pleasure to be among the first to see this truly exquisite photograph. The concentrated light reminds me of an oxyacetylene torch burning through a steel plate. You have managed the light magnificently. The note is informative, especially with the links.

That's a rather sad picture with one lonely swan.The composition is very good but somber.Friendly regards,Wolf.

The Belarus is so close but difficult to go because of the visa. Iriginal shot, is this a swan house there? Nice atmosphere, a bit mysterious.

A beautiful image of this lake with that light sitting right under the water spout. The sculpture sitting next to the spout is interesting. Nice inclusion of the silhouetted swan. Great quality picture.

Hi Sergiy, This is magical- I think the low light and the contrast between shadows and darkness is what brings out the beauty in the image.. congratulations .. Rich
