Beautiful Mute Swans. They look like they are part of a water ballet. I love the poses. Beautiful colors and nice shades of whites. Excellent details of their faces and plummage. The water looks so inviting and the reflections are lovely.

Splendid shot of this elegant Swan duo in interestingly synchronised poses. Very neat and sharp image with superb lighting and exposure levels. The rippled waters give a fine effect. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

Hi, dear Hil.
Once more amazing duet. Poses of the beautiful pair are the best and so elegant. Quality of the picture is outstanding. Fantastic exposure, great DOF and details of all even tiny features of the scene. Small waves on the surface are so charming as main characters. Bravo.

Swans sit to picture beautifully, as they would know that you do them portrait, I feel sure shyness. Super composition and sharpness. Beautiful picture, impression does.
I greet Robert.

What I like about this is the fact you have both in a position that looks choreographed. Goos lighting and whites.Thanks for sharing these.

Were they posing for your benefit, Hilary? It certainly looks that way:)
I love the perfection you've sought and found in this shot, the perfect water coloured a natural blue instead of the over PP'd bright blues and the lovely FG with the subject so naturally at display.

Very nice work Hil, Your swans have come a long way :)
You've caught a great POV and I like the staggered comp/position of the two..Excellent exposure of the whites with nice details there, hard to do.

une bonne profondeur de champ qui fait que les deux oiseau se trouve net et surtout un bonne exposition,chose parfois difficile sur le blanc.

A lovely and graceful capture.
There are now two pairs of mute swans on the mill pond locally here.
I like the synchro of the shot.
The details are sharp with lovely plumage detail.
