Hi Phil

Nice work, I also might say, so has been your membership over all this time. I have looked at your gallery several times. Great great shots, also you bother to do tutorials and visit so many other areas of the site.

There are not many members who have been so loyal and busy on this site. I for one can say it has not gone un-noticed.

Best of luck this month and if you get the chance, pop over to the NEC next monday we are meeting at the Fuji stand in hall 10 at midday.  Would be nice to meet you and other members face to face.

Cheers

First of all Phil, I would just like to back up what Steve has already said regarding your contribution to the site.

As for this, well another super entry. The colour and reflections captured in the water are beautiful and there is good detail in the feathers. The choice of frame brings everything together nicely. All in all, a lovely nature shot.

PS. Regarding my macro......I deliberately composed the shot with the hoverfly to the right, so that thistle would 'show' in the background! LOL...it's true what they say, each to their own! Wink

Anyway, all comments taken on board regardless. Much appreciated and valued as always.

Super vantage point Phil. Nice use of light and reflections. Good detail and nice timing for the swan presumably eating or drinking. Love swans and I'm always in the park over the road snapping them that's why I used one last month. Like me you managed to capture the detail in the feathers which isn't easy to achieve without sometimes blowing the shot.

Good luck.

A wonderful capture of this swan,like the way you have captured it's full length a great angle,love the curveture of it's neck looks so slender and graceful, fantastic reflections and a really good use of light. Excellent photo I think it's brilliant.

Thankyou for your comment on my photo, I used an HDR piece of software which added a little purple into the sky I did try to tone it down to get it as near to the actual colour as possible but didn't quite get it right, thankyou for pointing this out, much appreciated.

A lovely capture of this majestic swan Phil.  I like the way you have caught him/her feeding, and the yellow of the weed (cant remember its name)  on the water makes for a perfect entry this month. Very well done and good luck.   Thankyou for the kind comments on mine. Pam

Hi Guys.........Thanks for the wonderful comments you have made on my entry

Have just changed the title to the one which I wanted to use but could not remember before "On Golden Pond" after the film title starring Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn.

When I posted it I had "Yellow River" by Creedence Clearwater Revival going through my head.

Got there eventually.....................sorry no monkeys this month....maybe next

Hi Phil, How are you mate, see your still knocking out great images. 

A cracking image here mate, nice control of exposure and light balance to stop the whiteouts, that normally happens with swans, and nice ripply reflections. your usual high standards Phil.

Regards,

Geoff.
