*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A pleasing image that meets the challenge

Swans are always a popular choice and in the context of this challenge a very suitable one. I like the mono processing with a full range of tones. The ripples are very enticing though I think I would prefer a little more sharpness in the ripples behind. I assume you were at the 300mm end of your lens given the aperture/DOF result?

The composition is good using the upper third but this is not the most flattering timing and we are unable to see its eyes which, with a magnificent bird such as this, is disappointing. The one thing that lets the image down is the overexposure particularly on the bird but also in some areas of the water behind it. You have retained a lot of detail in the birds plumage but there are significant areas on its tail, back, wing and neck where there is no detail which unfortunately mars the end result.

Thanks for submitting, Sid
