I managed to get really close to the swans in the park. They would open their eyes every now and then to check me out but did not mind that I was close. I was almost standing directly above this swan for this photo.

Nota Bene my comment - the 'other entry' is precisely one place above this. No doubt some would have them reversed :) but closeness is good...
Congrats on the fringe ribbon.

Lovely composition Karen. I gave this a 7 but I should have given it more now that I look at it again. Congrats on your top 10 finish.

A bit confusing at first, which is not a bad thing. It holds the viewers interest long enuf to fully appreciate the simple grace.

Calm, nicely done - I'd like to see just a little more texture in the white (there's another entry that does that), but the subject is quite lovely and there's some great sharpness on the head.

I like how just enough of the head feathers are properly exposed to define the head, then fades to overexposed parts.

Beautiful image. Not really sure if its truly overexposed, but the high key effect works for me in this challenge.

Oh my. This is beautiful and artful. I love the diagonal line and use of neg space. Hope the other DPC crowd sees the beauty in this. :~)
