Great action shot. Sharp and in focus. Great work

Very different from the typical swan shot. Great action, and excellent technical - the white on white was exposed perfectly so that we clearly differentiate between the swan and the snow. Well done!

This is great! Sharpness and contrast are superb.Great action photo. Yukiko

Bonjour Dan , splendide ... félicitation pour le timming , le contraste , la lumière tout est parfait

Nice capture and composition, you handled the bright snow well. Were you using a filter? Is this from a RAW image?

well done

Great pose, very unusual.
Excellent management of the whites on both the mute swan and the snow, which is quite a challenge.
Details are great, and composition is interesting.
TFS. : )

Note is missing but the capture is sooooooo great! Difficult capture and yet technically perfect.

Wonderful capture Dan!!!

Hi Dan

Great timing. Well done on the management of all the white. Nice to view. Thanks!

Unsual capture. Well exposed. You were brave to shoot in JPEG instead of RAW. Good detail and texture. Well done, Dan!

How do you like the 70-300mm DO lens? I just bought it a week ago along with a 30D.

Outstanding capture , nice detail and not an easy shot to capture.
Great composition.
