Which swan?
Lens: DA 55-300 f/4-5.8 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Geneva, Switzerland 

Finally the sun was back today, so I went for a little stroll along the lake.
Among the following 4 swan shots, which one do you like better?
All taken with K5 + DA 55-300.





Thanks for looking!

Number 4. I reckon it feels dynamic. But they're all fantastic.

The framing of #2 is PERFECT, but I like the processing of #4 best.

I prefer the "action" on #3.

4 is my first choice. 3 is a strong second.
Thanks for posting these.

Thank you all!

Thank you all for your feedback!

Funny how we all have different opinions as to which one we like better.

It looks like number 3 and 4 are getting a bit more votes... although on such a small sample size, it's probably meaningless...

I like the 1st one the most, followed by the 2nd one.
To me, the perfect one would be the 1st with the swan of the 2nd

I was hoping there would be a clear cut winner, because I'd like to put only one of these on my site, but I don't know which one!

Anyway, thanks again
