Fantastic first photo.
I liked so much the almost parallel position of the two gooses ( I guess ) and the great background you got.
great colours, DOF, POV and sharpness.
well done.

Hi Kona, welcome to TN. And what a lovely scene to start off with. The geese (are they geese?) do look so sharp here flying. Well captured. Thank you

Hello Kona,
Excellent capture where you make well use of the light!
Action pleasantly frozen, wonderful colours and details...
Image is proficiently composed and a treat to my eyes!
Pablo -

Hello Kona,
A beautiful image, technically very accomplished, great composition avoiding the tight crop. I think technical points aside, you've captured something of the Swans here, their grace definitely. Excellent shot.

BTW A note would be good to tell us about the subjects, the image, where it was taken etc.

Your a master of photographying swans. Your pic "Two flights" is the best of the serie.

Hi Kona
It's beautiful swan in flight photo.TFS

Hi Mario
