Really like this image - isolating the neck and head against that wonderful background is very effective. You've got good exposure on the neck - holding detail in the whites. Focus is maybe (technically) a little soft but I actually think it works here, it gives a sense of movement and echoes the background.
The only thing I'd suggest is a slightly tighter crop to the top and right. On the top the very tip of the feathers is currently cropped off - that looks like an error, but if you trim just a little more so that the neck just arcs out of the picture and then crop similarly from the right so the edge of the neck also arcs out of the picture it looks more deliberate, and tightens the 'abstract' feel of the image by removing the 'dead' space just behind the neck.
Oh yes, and they're swans. Swan's never like being called geese. Never say it in ear shot. They take offence easily.
