3023 – Ride A White Swan II

Great swan, exactly the right moment, exactly the right light, wrong lens though. I suppose the 40-150/2.8 would have been the tool for the job. Or even the lowly 40-150/4-5.6.

Would I have pointed the right lens with the right zoom at the right moment into the right direction though? Sounds like a lot to get right, huh? Considering that, I actually feel good with what I’ve got 😀

The Song of the Day is one more time “Ride A White Swan” by T-Rex. Smells like youth 🙂

Hear it on YouTube.

  1. I am not sure I understand your desire for a different lens… this photo and its framing is just right for me. Good color, great back light, and as you said… exactly the right moment. Well done.

    1. John, as I said, I’m happy with what I’ve got. Had I had a longer lens, I could have isolated the one swan spreading its wings and that would have been an even much better image. Why? Probably because it’s rare to point a long lens with the perfect focal length and a wide aperture at exactly the right moment … and even nail focus 🙂

      Technically the same image with a longer lens is harder to get, which makes it more desireable. Take an image from space. Lots of such swans on it, right? 🙂
