I had this rated a 5. A bit on the lower side of the scale.

I think the thing that attracts me to a photo is ..do I want to see more? Sometimes a good photo gives up everything it has on first glance. A good first glance but nothing more interesting.

I like the color and the play of the reflection on the water but I still came away feeling like it was a well colored snapshot....it just didnt' draw me in. Its a sihouette of a swan on the water with some nice color. But there is nothing more for me to be interested in.

Technically I cannot fault you.

Obviously lots of others felt different so overall people thought well of this photo!

I really like how clean this image is; the water looks like liquid gold.

Lovely Silhouette here and the reflection and water ripples are beautiful.

The colour too is lovely and gives a nice peacful mood to the image.

If I were to nitpick (and it is nitpicking) I am not overly keen on the square crop and think a little more space to the left of the subject and a little more of the wake to the right would have worked better for me (see, told you it was nitpicking).

Really nice work though, well done and good luck! 7/10
