The swans are among the largest flying birds. Their wingspans can be 3 m. The Northern Hemisphere swans have pure white plumage but the Southern Hemisphere swans are mixed black and white.

I hope that this photograph receives the wide attention it deserves. The magnificent scene is well timed, flawlessly exposed. Although it is largely B&W, there is the subtle highlight create by the swans' beaks.

hello Ryszard. What amazes me here is that you captured this moment with a coolpix camera. The lighting and contrast between the swan pair and dark water lighting is excellent. Not to ignore the water details in motion...excellent capture.

Magnificent capture. Your timing was excellent and you give a good sense of movement in the wings while keeping the heads and bodies in focus. The dark BG, the reflections and splashing water are lovely.

You were at the good point and got a stunning picture of the 2 swans taking off from a pond. Sharpness, good light management, decisive moment, everything is correct.

Hello Ryszard - You have captured these magnificent birds at the perfect moment. I love the composition, the swans look wonderful with their white plumage against the dark water and their progress across the water has given lovely water splashes. Top class work. Warm regards rosemary

I'm not that into nature picture here, but for one of this quality I'll gladly make an exception. Great contrasts and sharpness. Lovely vignetting effect too. Thumbs up from me.

Wonderful, you were really quick to take the moment and to set rightly your camera. The darkness around the swans is a PP effect?
