This really was underrated. It was so beautiful and moody. I would put this one on my wall. I think you should try to sell it as a print. I am adding it to my favorites.

This made me smile. It's like they sat there so long the branch started to get weighed down.
Seem like alot of green, like maybe the white balance was off, but I like it that way, it makes it more artistic.

Soft and beautiful. Really a work of art. Should rank high. Great Job!!! Last minute tweaking of my votes and I am bumping you to "10" and you are my only perfect for this challenge.

There seems to be a lot wrong with the picture. It has a lot of glare behind the branch, and the focus is somewhat off, but I love the image so much, and the tonal treatment is so nice, that I have to give it a 9

Seems a little too overexposed.

I would like this better without the green saturation.

If only you had waited a moment for the swan to drift out of sho, or even just crop it out this would have been a very good shot, perhaps cropping a little bit off the bottom of the pic as well to help composition wise (rule of thirds). The ducks are just distinct enough but not too obvious to overpower the subject of a submerged branch. As it is though the swan has completely stolen the show and spoiled the theme imo, and robbed you of a very high mark.

I don't like the green film. I feel like someone blew grass in my eyeball.

This is a nice action shot, a little space in front of the swan would have improved the composition so it didn't appear to be leaving the frame. The whole image seems to have a green colour cast and be a little over exposed. I still like the image though, sometimes breaking the rules can work.

This would be wonderful if it weren't overexposed. Maybe adjust layers and bring the depth into the coloration. I love the movement of the swan.
