Hello Jose.
Well done!Superb capture of the action, very good timing!Great details in the feather coat, lovely expression in the face.Regards Siggi

Very theatrical effect in this image of a Whooper Swan, Jose.
The bird appears to be rising out of the waters like a mythical creature. That's the kind of three-dimensional effect you have obtained in this impressive capture.
Bravo and thanks for sharing it!

Una foto preciosa José! Tiene un gran control de los colores blancos, la velocidad es perfecta para congelar el movimiento de las alas. La posición del ave es preciosa. La profundidad de campo es genial, pues el background del agua hace un efecto visual de lo mas precioso. Una gran foto. Mi mas enhorabuena y un saludo.
