A gorgeous morning scene and nice stop action shot of the Swan with it's wings outstretched. Your misty morning adding intrigue to beauty to your photography. Very well photographed in good lighting, sharp focus, and outstanding details and clarity in your image. A wonderful entry into the contest and good luck. Outstanding work and thanks for sharing!

Very intriguing scene. Perfect timing for this landing! The monochrome tone pre dominating the image is lovely, it creates superb contrast of the swan's beak and the white on his wings! The fog creates a mysterious feel to this as well! Nice job, good luck!

a very appropriate title Indeed for this ballet dancer swan, who interprets so nicely the story of the princess Odette; just missing the music of Tchaikowsky;
a wonderful capture and likely winner of the contest;

very nice catch of the swan landing on the water. I love the water plow where he is touching down. Good focus and stop action. Nice details throughout. The light and color is a little strange but works. Well seen, good luck in the contest.

Here we go - this one is unusual in color range and natural sepia tones - you managed it to let the swan shine like gold in a grey environment - no matter if the dark cloud on the upper border is natural or if you worked on the background the result is stunning as it creates the perfect environment to let the swan standout in perfection
excellent exposure with genuine contrast and lighting - your swan is clear and sharp and I love the golden glimmer on him and the piece of water - excellent shot, a master is a master, loll

A beautiful stop action picture of this Mute Swan crash landing on the hake with the light from the rising sun glowing through it's flight feathers & the thrown up spray at it's feet, highlighting it's head & neck. The mist rising up from the lake hides the horizon & makes a beautiful blurred background. Artistic composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus on the Swan. Good luck in the contest.

A very beautiful nature image posted here! Your fine and classical composition captures a graceful in flight moment to enjoy. The wing displays are lovely. Sharpness and exposure are good. Well done and good luck!

really beautiful picture. excellent expression and a timely capture. fantastic expanse and truly a wonderment of nature. the best nature is the light through those delicate but strong wings.
