However, and I hope this isn't bothersome to you in any way, I was wondering if I could use this? Just as a reference for a simple traditional piece, nothing more. But if you don't allow so, I understand, and please do hide this comment if you please. But thank you very much, and this shot is amazing!
Wow...this is just breathtaking! The wings in mid-flight just look outstanding. The way you captured the moment, right beneath the water is beautiful, and the picture isn't even a little bit blurry. Well done on so many levels...this is very elegant!
Thanks for this photo and your explanations. I really enjoyed it, both the sharpness and the light. I also like the fact that the swan seems like is looking at the camera, tilting his head towards it. Great!!!
I can't remember specifically for this shot but normally I shoot in bursts of 3 frames. The main reason for doing this is because the second frame is normally sharper than the first because there is less camera movement.
