Near Munich Zoo there is a big river with lots of swans on it, I took lots of shots, but the ones which had quite a few swans in them looked like snapshots....photographs anyone would take...I had a photo of a swan stretching which was like a ballet dancer, but decided not to use it due to lack of detail.
I cropped this print, and used the auto fixs.Not that great with photoshop.I used a longer lens with a focal length 130.0mm

this is a very nice pic, it didn't need the border

Nice, but I thing it needs more light, maybe in a sunny day. I like the concept. Very good work.

Great shot. Nice detail on the face and the reflected water.

Not sure if the border is working for me, I'd lose it. Image appears a little flat, would like more contrast.

Good close-up. I feel it's cropped too tight though, and the buttonizing border is very distracting. 6.

the picture is not sharp enough for this kind of closeup shot. I like the water drops on neck.
somehow the intersection of the swan and water seems too artificial.

Looks a little under exposed to me. The border doesn't help the image. Perhaps also a bit too tight.
