No model release for this one. Looking like a snake with its belly full, the swan posed for me cooperatively and even allowed me to shoot close ups, less than a meter away.

Selection of subject and background separately, levels and channel mixer adjustments.

Very nice snake swan
beautiful bw
I like

very difficult figure i think

Great capture Bem!
I think this fella is double jointed :)

I love the textures of the surrounding sand/gravel, it works great with the soft focus on the swans feather edges.

Perfect for a B&W image, very well done.


Nice shot my friend. Just a word of caution, these swans get cranky and they do bite at times. I got chased by one in a resort once!


An excellent submission Bem. Lovely pose, good tonal range and fine detail. TFS,

But I bet she had her eye on you all the time!!
Good shot, especially in B&W
Well done

A wonderfully contorted view of this fine bird. Perhaps a tighter, more abstract crop might have made a stronger composition? However, beautiful tones throughout and an excellent shot. Regards, Paul.
