Nice symmetry with the reflection however I think some of the highlights are blown (feathers have no detail). There is a slight sense of depth from the lines in the water however to get a stronger 3D effect there needs to be more detail in the background. It might have worked showing the horizon.

very good, color a bit stong

A nice shot, with pleasing color, but the composition just doesn't seem dynamic enough to give that "something special".

Nice capture...especially the colors...the white does seem a little bit bright...

nice reflection

Joe Cool is now a swan? :-)

Classic shot of a swan and its reflection. I'd like to capture a shot like this one day. Nice work. -danny

Great well saturated colors and a beautiful bird. The lighting is perfect. My only minor point is that the border detracts. I would think a thin black border would work better. Even so - I would place it in the top 10.

A very graceful and majestic image. I love the dark color of the water and how it fades back into black. It looks like you've blown the details in some of your highlights, but that looks more like a contrast issue than exposure. The orange beak adds a nice splash of color. The stillness of the water and the reflection add to the gracefulness of the image. Very nice.

This is an absolutely beautiful photo. The focus seems just a little bit soft and it's a tad overprocessed, but I love the water and the reflection. Really nice job.

Beautiful simplicity. High contrast has lost some detail on the swan's back. 8 - floyd

Wonderful. Very peaceful. It's like being in a whole new world.

Water makes nice reflections. I would croped more in front and less at back... the circles of water show interesting movement.

Beautiful subject. The composition reminds me of a post card.

would have been in my top ten if the detail in the body was not so blown out.

IMO I like the cool blue color but I wish I could see more detail of the subject [face]. With that said I think you have a good photograph for this challenge. I hope you do well

Beautiful colors and reflection, nice composition too. (10)

Good luck...

Beautiful and sharp. The highlights seem a bit blown out on the swan, but the gorgeous water color makes up for that. This is one of my favorites of the competition so far. :)
