What a superb pov. Was just about to say that you are a brave person, then I read your narrative Grin. I would have fled too! Great shot though. Well worth the aggro Wink. Moira

Moria, I'll see if I can find the post fleeing photo and pop it on my portfolio just so you can see how terrifying it was!! H xx

In case anyone is interested I have put the follow on photograph on my portfolio "When swans attack.....RUN!" just so you can see what a terrible situation I found myself in. Lying flat on the floor with three swans thinking I was holding out on food and deciding to gang up on me!!! The quality of the image is not brilliant as I was just starting to get up and run when I took it. Enjoy!!!! H xxx

This is a brave shot. Ive seen the attack shot, - but it was worth the risk this is so good.


Ive uploaded a mod you might like, more space on the left, a little sharpening and colour balance.


Well done



Regards


Willie

Thanks Willie, It was brave and I haven't gotten that close to a swan since!!! Swanaphobia!! Thank you for taking the time to produce a modified image. I like it. The extra space to the left works well, but I like the original colour scheme as there was a brilliant sunset and you can see the colours of that reflected on the swan, but you had to be there to know that!!! Many thanks for the input H x
