Wow, now that is an interesting capture. The focus and exposure are perfect, a difficult task with a stark white object like a swan. Did you post process this image?

I did post process the image. I used the Nik software for sharpness and the b&w, then I dropped it into photoshop and darkened the background, added lighting to the forground. About 4 processes to get the effect that I was looking for. Taken on an overcast gloomy day with snow in the background and no shadows! Had to make do as I liked the subject.

Wonderful image. Timing, exposure, composition - 10 out of 10. And I know how hard it is to nail the exposure on a pure white subject. And, of course, it's sharp as heck. B&W nature images are rare but when done this well, they knock your socks off.
