[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I took some frames of these swans this summer at Lake Balaton but I didn't want to post a too ordinary shot but now browsing through archives I found one that might be interesting. Not much more to say about it, you either like it or not we'll see :)

Best regards,

hello Andor

funny and excellent shot of these swans in their food search
under the water, it is giving an impression of a synchronized dance,
superb timing to shoot them in photo, TFS


Hi Andor,
Definitely not the usual poses!
A great timing here, both from the swans like in a synchronized dance, and from you to get ready to press the shutter.
Besides that, a nice composition.
Well done and thanks for share.
Best regards,

Hello Andor,
Fantastic funny capture, excellent composition, good sharpness, lovely natural colors and good depth of field.

Yep i like it! Kinda image that i find fascinating and you captured the moment well. Composition is very good and really made the most of it...nicely done.
(thanks for adding my recent shot to your favourites, it is much appreciated my friend :o)

I must admit that I was baffled with the thumbnail and it took me a second to realize what it was when I opened the image. It is an amusing/entertaining shot. So often waterfowl do things in sync. I think perhaps had you compensatied up a bit the swans swans would appear less gray. I suppose one could address that in pp too.
