I know this swan. Very nice Melissa, I've taken a lot of photos of that bird, but not anything as sharp as this. You've done well. I love it.

Nice! I like the colors and lines in the water. I have never seen swans at Fellows Lake.

Good exposure on the swan and the dark waters contrast nicely. Not a fan of the border.

Gorgeous play of light on the water. You have done well balancing the exposure for both the intense darks and the white of the swan.

Beautiful use of the reflections.

Oooh, fire water! I like the diagonal to the composition, too, and the detail and exposure. I think he needs a little more room on the left, though, as the image feels crowded there.

I don,t like the white border but the shot and your composition are really well done 8

Lovely patterns and colours on the water.

grea leading lines, good that were able to capture swan without glare. Shot during golden hour is my guess. 8
