Wow - I finally made top 10. Of all my photos submitted, this is not one that I would have thought would make it...

This was taken with an added 2x converter and I also cropped it in quite a bit (almost 2x), I'm surprised I had anything left to work with after all that :)

Thanks for the votes & all the encouraging comments! Here's one of many alternate entries:

Something about this one just catches my eye. I want to keep looking at it. That means a lot when I score an image. The surface details in the water and the way the lines that transition out of the water into the darkness mirror reflections of the birds heads below them. A very serene and peaceful scene. Enough babbling, this should ribbon.

Lovely bokeh. The abstract of the water is the perfect environment for the swans to float in.

Very pretty blues and nice mood in this shot. Feels like true love to me : ) Love the reflections and I even think the border works great. Back to bump you up to 9.
