Thank you all for your C&Cs on my previous uploads. As always very much appreciated
This is a series of 4 high burst consecutive shots taken at Wetlands, Arundel, of a swan landing. Technically I am not happy with the detail on the plumage as it is pretty clipped out. It was a bright sunny day and I was busy photographing something else when I heard a loud flapping of wings and turned to see the swan preparing to land, so I just aimed the camera and panned, pressing the button. Have tried to tweak the plumage detail in PS - perhaps somebody else might be able to improve on it with a mod?
However, I did like the movement and hope you will have a moment to look. The angle of the feet (landing gear!) in V1 and V2 is worth a look.
