    I guess before commenting on how close-up you were on 2clicksaway I should have seen this!

    Nice sharp image and well balanced exposure. Great textures.

      Thankd, John. I was on the Bay access bridge on the sidewalk with the 70-300mm VR attached. The original has the entire swan but I decided to on this crop to bring out the texture of the feathers. I only noticed the detail after zooming in in LR4.

    Terrific! The tonal range alone is breathtaking!

      Thanks, Linda. After I clicked the shutter on this one I thought it would make it into the “bloopers” folder. I was surprised myself.

    This is a great exposure – all those details. I like the framing too – the bits of water give it enough context that it is immediately recognisable, and it is such nice water.

      Thanks, ehpem. At first I thought I would apply a blur to the water but I think it adds a little interest to the composition.

        Some of those little ripples are very compatible with the fine edges of the feathers, they work well together.

          Thanks, ehpem. I almost cropped them out, too.

    You say it’s a swan — but it could be an angel… Beautiful capture of the tonal range!
