    Young Swan landing on the River Thames

    A sequence of shots from yesterday using rapid fire with my 300D. For the last couple of days the wind has been blowing from the south, which at this point in the river is blowing head on. For the larger birds the wind slows them making it easier to capture without the risk of unacceptable blurring.

    Can't see each image large enough to comment individually, but:

    • I think the idea of this 'multiple picture' image is wonderful fro a subject such as this. It just works.
    • If these have been cropped and you have some discarded 'bits' , I wonder if it would be worth trying to crop and arrange so that the line of the far bank was aligned in each of the pairs. In the top two the bank is higher on the right. In the bottom two, it's higher up on the left picture


    The latter point is a fairly minor idea to what is, as I say, a wonderful idea, well done.

    I also like the concept of the presentation. However, when incorporating such strong lines, you need to make sure that the photos are exactly aligned. (They're off a bit.) I'm not even sure that they are exactly the same size, which in this particular presentation, they need to be. If they're not the same size, it's not possible to arrange them in perfect alignment. Also consider making the vertical strip of white that separates the images the same size as the horizontal strip. Similarly, make the top margin the same size as the left and right margins.

    That makes sense.

    Great series Christopher, with the adjustment Donald suggests it will make for a great mural.
