Siblings by sekhmet-neseret Siblings by sekhmet-neseret
Two Mute Swans. It's their first day out of their nest.
Here they are resting on an old abandoned nest, which is under a thick tree which filters the light.
No manip was done.

First, I love the use of lowlight to emphasize the two cygnet's heads, it really personifies the relationship of siblings in animals. I don't know if its intentional or not, the angle makes their bodies curve into a heart. Every element pulls the eyes into the center. You got close enough with the subject in order to bring out the texture (important element often photographers forget) of the fur, which give a sense of warmth. My suggestion is that you could've only taken the heads and their bodies, because I see some distraction at the bottom. But overall, this is very well captured.
What do you think?
