That last comment by the way was inspired from a very famous TV commercial series here in the US.

A beautiful swan - I like your composition - My only 2 wishes would be to see more detail of the back and more of the reflection. Photographing white subjects in sunlight is difficult though. Nice job. :-)

very crisp, nice reflection, the front on approach to the shot is less graceful than some other angles of a swan's neck 7

Nice sharp close up.

The swan's beak could have easily gotten lost in the background. You kept it from doing that. Well done.

Nice shot of a beautiful bird. Would like to have seen the full reflection.

Do Bugler swans do that thing with their wings like our UK mute swans?

Very good with these strong B&W contrasts. Good closeup.

great shot there. But I personally feel that there could be a more imaginative subject other than a swan. Where Swan=Grace, we all kinda know it, so i would think that i good shot will be one that inspires more than reminds.

This is a pretty shot of a swan, with nice deatail, but I think it loses by not showing more of the reflection. I think if you had moved back or zoomed your lens to a wider angle, the swan and reflection together would have been a fantastic shot.

Classic shot, I love it. Just not sure if the fuzzy boarder helps or detracts though.

The black on white is very effective in this image. Swans are such very graceful creatures.
