Great photo. I didn't have time to vote during the challenge, but I had this pegged as a top 3. I think you were underrated because of all the bird/pond type bird shots in the challenge. I just love this, and it's going into my favorites!

Fabulous capture. Excellent silhouette. Not a fan of borders but still an 8

I think I'd have cropped out the ducks. There just seems to be too much on the left hand side with nothing to balance it out on the right.

Shame you didn't get the shot half a second later when the swan wouldn't have been quite so tight on the edge of the frame, but otherwise this is stunning.
I love the way the the ripples make the line of sunlight curve towards the swan, leading the eye straight to the subject. Great shot, well done.

One of my favorites of the week. I love the color and the composition is outstanding. I like everything about this shot - color, contrasts, everything! 10

If not for the ducks, I'd rate this a 10, but that's just me. I think the swan has a powerful impression but is underscored a bit by the ducks.
Great photo. - 9 - Mav

Calm, lovely, pretty. Crop is snug on the right side.

[Comment only] Very soothing, tranquil capture. Composition is excellent, though I might have extended the length a little bit more. I see the photo is at 630x480. I would have gone the full 640x480 without the use of a border or at least not one so heavy looking. The two ducks in the background add a nice second point of focus.
