Hello Kona,
A great action shot. The sprays of water perfectly frozen along with the backlit Swans makes a very dramatic image. Great work.

Same BTW, note please :-)

Hi Kona,
This is a beautiful action shot! I love this lightning and water splashing all around those beautiful birds! Details with the sun shining trough their feathers are just great! This is really well done. I like your work and TSF,

I love it...
Photo is full of action in splendid light.

nice moment, good composition and the light is perfect
Good job Kona


What a fantastic flurry of action in superb light - the framing is perhaps a little off to the right and I wonder if we need to see quite so much top and bottom of the image - i think this would work well in a letterbox format too - but it is really quite an extraordinary image. Very beautiful!

best wishes Kev

wow, amazing!

Hi Kona,

Excellent lighting and beautiful capture of the moment. Bravo.


Great shot! The droplets of water, sunrays filtering through the water, all look awesome.

Great capture. Beautiful image of birds fighting, looks more like a dance than a fight.
