Love it! The new lens looks good. Excellent sharp and clear detail, perfect exposure, no blown highlights and detail in all but the darkest areas. I really like the composition here, quite unusual but creative, the head and eye are well balanced in the frame. Nice capture of the water droplets too and of course the eye contact. All in all a great shot, good camera work.
Outstanding sharpness, you really got close. You mention that the ban on lead weights has solved the problem of lead poisoning, but I thought that problem would take many years to resolve, as those lead weights will remain for many years. Or do lead weights sink into the mud, and become inaccessible within a year or so?
Hi Deborah, this is incredible detail on this swan. You've caught the catch light with the swan looking at you and I love the way the water is running off the bill.
nice action with the water droplets, good focus and nice expression on the bird good colors too
Very good close up with artistic tuch.
Nice pose details and colors.
Yes, this lens are heavy. I felt the same when I switched from Panasonic FZ30 to Canon + 100-400 L.
focus, light, colors and details are perfect!
Sharp and clear where it needs to be on the eye. Exposure is well handled on the white, textures on the skin and feathers is good, water drops add interest. Works well...
very impressive shot, i loved the water droplets falling & the way she is looking to the lens, very nice pose, well composed shot, nice point of view,
tfs & regards

About yur lens, it's a very good lens with great sharpenss
and a good third generation of IS, I have own one and I liked it a lot. And it's not that heavy if you consider the range, 70-300 and vith IS. You can try to use a monopd.
Light, colors and details are perfect!
Very good close up with artistic touch.

Congrats and a great shot. Nothing wrong with your timing! :-)
At 1/1600, you have created a fantstic effect by capturing the water drops trickling off the swan's beak.
The close-up image of the face is very sharp, clear and colourful.

This is one of the most interesting compositions of a swan I have seen.The drip exposure is right on.Lighting and crop do wonders for it.
So glad you made a comment on one of mine, because that allowed me to see your images faster than I may have by random.
