Really nice in-flight capture of these graceful Swans, I like the simple composition, and the fact you have captured two different poses of flight, love the colours, lighting and BG too.
TFS Hilary :o)

Thanks for sharing your image; interesting in flight.
Maybe cropping the air part is an option?

Great shot Rick. The positioning of the swans here works well.
Amazing shot Rick! Not only have you shot a pair of beauties, but to see the shadow of one bird's wing on the other is simply outstanding. Excellent focus on the birds and showing speed against background. I believe you did the right thing to have the sky strip on top. As wee crop at bottom to remove dark junk will help... What say you?
There is a lot more you captured than seen here; so have a peek in WS ;)

a nice inflight shot with good POV and details.
It's a bit bright but still a nice picture.

very smooth and elegant in flight capture, well detailed, with beautiful soft colours. Very nice to see the shadow of the upper swan's wing on the wing of the lower one.
Well written complete notes. Thank you!

great inflight capture, excellent details and very nice sharpness. I Love the POV with the wondeful neutral colored BG.
I will add this shot to the trumpeter swan theme.

I love the compostion on this one, just enough open space in front of the birds to give that feeling of them moving even though they are frozen in perfect detail. The clarity is excellent as is the DOF, which sets off the swans nicely. Colors are lovely and soft and the shadow of the wing on the lower bird is super feature. I'd crop a fraction off the bottom to remove that small bit of dark area, or use the clone brush to cover it.
I am beginning to wonder if it is my monitor as the only other thing I would change would be to increase the contrast a bit. My monitor is a few years old and I can't get a satisfactory calibration (to my eyes) on it...so perhaps the contrast of this image is fine.
