Trumpeter Swans in flight.
03-FEB-2008 Lady D.

Trumpeter Swans in flight.

This is one I processed a few weeks ago, I am waiting for the Mac version of CS3 to come.
So far not bad, though I lost 6,000 2006 images because my external hard drive died on me when transferring them to my new computer and for some reason I never had 2006 backed up to my second drive. Oh well I might be able to rescue some...

Canon EOS 40D ,Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM
1/1600s f/6.3 at 420.0mm iso640 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Superb shot.....voted
Have you tried the Hard Drive manufacturers Help line, you may be able to send it back to the supplier for retrieval of your shots, someone else on the forum did that recently. Good Luck.

Great shot Jess. Love the light and shadows on the gorgeous wings.
And of course they are set against the natural setting of the mountain which really punches the shot.....

Great shot - the limited DOF really gives a feeling of depth.

I sure hope you can rescue all of your shots! This is beautiful! They always fly together. I love how they mate for life!

Nice shot! I've been photographing swans and snow geese the past two weekends; its tons of fun. Regarding you lost files, I have good news! They are totally recoverable with a variety of inexpensive software packages avaialable on the market. I lost some images in the recent past and was able to fully recover every one!

Very nice capture of the two in flight Jess. V. Too bad you lost your 2006 images. The same happened to me once, but only two months worth .
