Photographer's Note

Repost note: After a closer look on the swan (thanks Bente) I realised my mistreatment of this photo - This only given resized and one light sharpening.

Data for the shot: f5.6 / 1/640 iso50 - Could someone please tell me how I can uptain this information from a picture on my computer (I had to load this back in my camera)


The title should of course be ”starry starry sea” but I wanted to use the same title, as that fine old song by Don McLean – about Vincent van Gogh.

Not much to say about this – My camera was running low on batteries when I spotted this lonely swan.
I got her/him from the car – but decided to get even closer – which made him decide to “sail” away.

The sun was quite high on the sky and the see was relative calm, The reflections was too much for my eye’s but I decided to wait for the swan to get into the reflection area – and hoping for something useful.
I got four shot with the last power on the batteries – and returned home curious the result –
Ok may be its too much, but I was surprised to get this image from a backlight shot, hope you like it too.

PP: Normal settings for colour saturation, resize, framing, sharpening.

Second note! There wasen't use filters - in fact I dosen't even own one :-) but may be I should invest in some.
