Dear Friends...Alresford is a true "magical" spot...a village in the South of England - Hampshire.
Photo taken in the gardens of the famous "The Globe" pub.
Sharing some pints of bitter & this view just is "paradise".
Hope you enjoy !

Hi Robert. Another beautiful scenary on this Shot. The water moves provoked by the birds on the surface of the lake is a great capture. Colours are goegous and the image is sharpened. The black frame is very nice too. Well done! tibo

I think the colors look great. This is a beautiful place, and I really like the family of swans. The big one makes for a great center of interest.

Man, these colors are stupendous. Such an incredible composition. The depth offered by your perspective is very nice. The life added by the goose and her goslings is fantastic. Really a suoperb shot.
Well done friend,

colours are unusual, your frame likes as a painting.
Anyhow I like it.

very stunning place with beautiful colors and clarity. The DoF is very good in this compo. I see the clouds going from big to small in the far distance. This place truly looks like paradise with all the beuatiful things nature has to offer.

These colours are great, and the framing is good.
Very nice pic.
vincz (19113) 2006-10-01 12:01
This looks so wonderful and quiet. Colours are amazing, really well saturated 9I personally prefer it that way than the version proposed in the workshop). Indeed a true paradise feeling. Thanks.
zeca (19762) 2006-10-01 12:05
Nice landscape! Beautiful colours and excelent POV and DOF. The framing is also very vell done!
Loic_bzh (7646) 2006-10-01 12:25
you're right, this place looks like paradise. Your photo is well composed but the colors look a little bit "artificial" to me. Anyways, very beautiful pict!
Budapestman (82620) 2006-10-01 19:02
This is a fabled natural photo! Fantastic atmosphere and beautiful details! Its so than a romantic painting! This is a successful and very aesthetic shot!

superpau (1464) 2006-10-02 18:14
Muy buena imagen, Robert!
Desde el cielo, con esas nubes que parecen algodón, hasta los cisnes y los "patitos feos" nadando en la laguna, esta imagen tiene de todo!!!!
Felicitaciones por la foto!

Hi Robert. Paradise found. Hope the beer matched the view. Well captured, great POV and composition. Thanks for sharing.
feather (51130) 2006-10-03 8:36
You have captured a beautiful and idyllic scene. The swan surrounded by her cygnets makes this really special. After seeing the WS I read some of the comments about the colours. I think it comes down to a matter of taste. My first reaction was WOW, but on reflection maybe it is a bit over-saturated (something I frequently get accused of although I rarely increase saturation)However the WS is too dark and there is so much "life" taken out. Maybe it just needs toning down a little to be more realistic. Nevertheless a wonderful image.
pboehringer (770) 2006-10-03 11:19
Robert, the colors and sharpness are superb. The composition is excellent. I just have the impression that the swan could have been placed a little bit less in the centrum of your shot. Wait, why are I'm complaining here? Great shot fellow!
Best Regards, Peter
dougie (2966) 2006-10-03 14:06
An idyllic scene to be sure. It has all the right ingredients and an excellent composition. Colour might be a wee bit strong for me but on balance I think it goes well with this scene. Thanks.
izmirli (3987) 2006-10-04 1:41
bonjour my friend robert
wonderful picture.wonderful colours and swan.
friendly greetings from Istanbul.
pablominto (53744) 2006-10-04 5:59
I for sure could spend a nice summer day enjoying some pints there! Do they charge extra for the view, hehehe...
This is like a painting where the artist creates his ideal scenery, magnificient colours and details!
rbcy1974 (20758) 2006-10-04 8:00
Un paisaje muiy lindo
Me gusta mucho la textura de las nuves, del agua de la vegetacion
Muy bien capturado
cbrman (21645) 2006-10-05 1:22
Bravo, une belle image champêtre ! Les couleurs sont bien saturées et le ciel chargé de nuage superbe ! La composition est très bonne, la famille de cygnes donnent beaucoup de vie à l'image !
jrj (34841) 2006-10-05 4:14
You are right, this look as a kind of paradise. A fine landscape with lakes and green sourroundings and of course the swan mother and her little ones is a real charmer to include :-)
cunejo200 (7281) 2006-10-05 10:53
A truly beautiful photo. Like a painting. Great composition, colors, and sharpness. Best wishes. Danilo

Beautiful compisition with vivid colors.
luisafonso (862) 2006-10-10 4:14
Yes, it really seems paradise. Love the deep saturated colors. The give such a life to the frame. The composition is also very good with several layers to look upon. The ducks in the foreground leading to the water grass in the middle and the clouds on the back... what an intense sense of depth. I love this one Robert!
mortijo (12828) 2006-11-01 13:50
Very difficult not to enjoy it!! Excellent composition and capture of a beautiful place. Lively, well saturated colors. Congratulations.
jaja1970 (1304) 2006-11-03 10:01
This is a very nice shot. Beautiful compo & lovely sharp colors.
Well done & TFS,
miuky (3335) 2006-11-03 11:11
feels like jungel expirience(maybe like in a pub, saturday evening...:)..), so exellent sharpness, great colors and a very nice composition:)
Edyta_B (8) 2006-11-03 15:35
Excellent, idyllic photo... I suppose you took it in paradise indeed:) The place you shot is really uncommon.
And I like at this photo pure, saturated colours, light, reflections in the water and... this landscape:)
sebcz (2345) 2006-11-04 3:35
It truly looks like a paradise, all those details, colours. Background and foreground equally interesting. I'd outcenter the swan a bit, but that would be another attempt to that scene.
kurekpit (401) 2006-11-11 8:54
WOW,excellent shot,superb saturation and quality.I like this picture very much.Well done,regards-Saludos

Beautiful place, excellent composition with birds making circles in the water. With this colour grass and lovely sky.

rozy975 (3047) 2006-12-09 6:19
Are you sure that this is not a painting? :)
IgorDeleze (585) 2006-12-27 10:06
You're right. It look like paradise for those Ducks!
Great colors (like in your habits) and a lovely composition.
balatrek (7455) 2006-12-31 5:34
Con esta imagen muestras el paraíso, texturas y colores son increíbles, me gusta la composición y las ondas que se han creado en el agua por el movimiento de los Cisnes, un bello trabajo.
Saludos y Feliz Año Nuevo
sabyasachi1212 (19773) 2007-01-29 4:08
I don't know what is it with birds today, its the third consecutive birds photo I am critiquing today. A magical photo indeed. Perfect setting, great colours. Love the way the larger swan seems to be dominating over the smaller ones.
With Greetings from India
