Hi Hilary. What a clear picture of the young mute swan. you have fine detail in the feathers . with rich colours. showing the new white feathers. as you say they grow very quickly. good use of the light to give a clear shot. well done TFS. good notes too.

I am amazed with impressiveness of subject and quality o d the picture. Both are simply outstanding. Clearness of the colours are impress the imagination as well as the exactness of light tone reproduction. Water image, mirror reflections and waves are fantastic too. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Hilary, this is a very nice photo of this young Swan. Rarely taken but worth it. The light, tones and shadows in this shot are magnificent. It is good to see his wings raised, proving he is growing up. Very nice pov and a great composition.

A beautiful swan image ,that has a good sense of motion to it,the pose is graceful and almost flash.
One gets the feel of a forward glide as the swan sails along.
The focus is spot on with excellent detail.
Wonderful plumage detail and you have captured a lovely glint in the eye.

Good S curve, Hilary. In PP as well as in the Swan's pose:-)
Excellent DOF; overall sharp.

I don't think I've ever seen a cygnet behaving like an adult in this way by raising its wings in the typical swan manner. You've caught him sharply from a fine POV in an excllent composition with the beautifully rippled water.
Pity I missed this previously.
