Technically, I love everything about this except the washed out swan. If there were details in the swan's feathers this would be absolutely superb. I might also crop a little off the bottom to place the swan a little lower in the frame. On the aesthetics I love the serene setting. The white swan really pops off the background. The reflection off the water makes the perfect canvas.

You are quite right Walter - just goes to show that you shouldn't process RAW files when tired since all the feather detail is retained in the original file!

 

I shall have to have another go at this one when I get the chance!

This is truly beautiful Rob.. looking forward to seeing your new edit.
