Hello Mark,

A great action shot from this Swan. Splendid wingaction. Very nice natural colors. POV, DOF and BG are good. I like the mirror effect in the water. Regards and TFS BOB

Hi Mark,
Very nice capture. Nice POV and details.


What a powerful shot this is ! I love the POV. It shows the amount of energy this bird put into the take off. I love the frozen water and the action coming through this picture. Very nice work. TFS.

Best Regards,

Hello Mark,
What a great action shot! It is so powerful. I like the mirror image,that looks like the water was hugged by the Swan.
Thanks for such a beautiful picture
