Symmetry of Trumpeter Swans

Symmetry of Trumpeter Swans

Professional Photographer and TTSS Photo of the month Greg Smith says:      

What jumps out in this photograph is the symmetry of the four birds with outstretched necks.  The second aspect that captures your attention is that all four birds are in crisp focus and looking in slightly different directions.  It is only when your gaze lingers that you notice the reflections on the calm water.  The russet necks complement the blue and the horizontal format does wonders for what would normally be a vertical shot.  Ed’s capture of these four swans utilized composition, lighting, exposure and depth of field to create an outstanding art print!
