Thanks for your quick response!

Stu,
No, I haven't been reading DCM. I will check it out though. Wink

Rob,
This is as good as chasing GT or F1 cars. Wink

Excellent panning work it this graceful shot of the swans flying in formation. Like the sense of movement and colors in this image.

Trust me Gemm, I reckon you've done a cracking job with this. The head is perfectly sharp, and yet because the wings are well blurred it gives the shot a real sense of motion, speed and power!
Cracking work!
