Good, but too much JPEG compression - look at the blocking in the sky, and the strange patterns in the spray. I'd consider a RePost with far less compression.

Hi Kona,

well captured action,I like the action in this shot,you freezed it very well,looks like they are performing a kind of dance,well done and TFS


very good moment.
in Italy, in this days, they are falling in love.
it is spettacular to see their necks movements, the syncronism of their heads.

I hope to show that. in a very good way like you.

Hi Kona

Wonderful action shot here. I like the verticals created by the two swans on the left and the line of spray on the right. Works very well. TFS

Excellent réflexe. Belle réussite.
Bonne journée.

congratulation for that very good action capture, well done, the photo is fantastic, the quality has suffered with the jpeg compression, but the original one might be perfect i guess..
