A pair of swans were ignoring me and providing some nice foreground, when one decided to display. The slow shutter speed seems to compliment the movement.

V2 shows the second swan, but as it was preening at the time I think its apparent headlessness makes it a distraction. Opinions are welcome.

Thanks for looking

Both images are superb. Love the composition and tones and the motion blur of the wings. To top it off you have a wondeful ripple and reflection.

The only thing for me is that the border is too heavy and in my mod I have replaced it with a more appropriate border and adjusted a few levels to emphasize the swan a little more.

Which one do I prefer - not sure they are both excellent images and have their own merits.

Regards

Ian

Both superb shots. Sometimes the opportunistic and unexpected are the very best.

Two fabulous shots, but V1, with the focus on just one swan, is simply breathtaking!
