Great picture,Toni! Your birds look like unreal and pasted but this is what I like! It gives a very special and artistic "cachet" to it! I like it very much! Congrats and TFS! Michel

Lovely warm tones and your two swans with blue tinting makes this a somewhat surreal. Nice job Toni.

Absolutly beautifull
lucky you to see them up and have cam with you! effect is amazing!

Woooooooooooow good shot’s. Send them to the KLM the use the swan in the there advertisement campaign. I try to photograph them for years and I know its difficult.

Interesting composition and colors, although unreal. Don't send this to KLM, send it to Swissair! :)))

Very nice PP work. Wish this was real for me to see in person. Good work.

For shure i guess it was a superposition...
Birds can't have clarity of color like that on a sunset...

But it give a good fairytale style! I enjoy it a lot!

WOW Toni a Great combi of these two pictures. The colors of the sky and the light on the swans are beautiful.

wow....you combined two shot and the result is just great, nice really warm colors...how dreamy and romantic! :))

Wonderfull picture.
It doesn't matter how you did it. This is amazing! The colours that come bak in the wings of the swans and the sharpness of it all grabs me.
Groet and thanks,

Absolutely perfect!!

Salut voisin. Sympa ta photo, vraiment.
Les cygnes volent rarement si haut, mais le montage leur octroie cette liberté.

Un montage réussi. Cela me rappelle la chanson du dessin animé : "Niels Olgerson, qu'est ce que tu vois de là haut..."

L'intégration des 2 images est vraiment réussie.

You did a great job combining the two photos Toni. It looks so real! Thanks for sharing

Wonderful composition. The red evening sky and setting sun are a beautiful background. The addition of the flying swans turns a great picture into a superb one! You have managed to put the birds into just the right spot to make an excellent composition. Great work on this.

This is an amazing shot, I must commend you on the clear sharp detail on the swans, this coupled with a stunning sunset makes for a great shot

PS - Did you use Photoshop to do this?


Hi, Toni,
Magnificient shots , great montage! It looks so beautiful and unreal...I'm really speechless...Thanks for sharing such a beauty!

Sublime image, Toni. I can't tell it's a montage.
Very well done, TFS.

Thats a very very beautiful capture which sure mustve been equally difficult to capture. the birds returning home have been well caught. The colours are vivid and beautiful and the tetures are lovely. Overall this is a superb shot that has been well seen and crafted

so nice shot
