Dramatic shot! The exposure is incredible with perfect light on a white subject. Excellent detail and great pose of the bird. I am marking it a favorite, but I would like to know what special effects you did in post processing and I wish you would have identified the bird. I am guessing a swan, but I am not sure.

Hi Kona

Wonderful action shot of the Whopper Swan, very nice presentation with a good POV and a superb pose, I love the backlighting of all the water splashes and great colours too.
