Neat Swan shots. Especially number one. I like the play of light and shadows on the bird.

The first shot is really my favorite. The dribbling of the water makes it very artistic

Thanks Jim! I thought the last one was a classing pose, so to speak.

Great shots again Georg. You managed well to keep detail in the white feathers!

Excellent stuff! The first one looks most artistic (light, composition and the direction the swan is swimming/looking into) and the other two would go well in some book about birds describing how a swan looks like.

I like the top one best, it has nice light.
Its a different angle too, which is great.

Nice shots! I agree about the first one....it has a very dramatic feel to it.
