Challenge: Light On White (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Location: Reykjavík
Date: Mar 1, 2005
Galleries: Nature, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Mar 1, 2005

I decided to take a bicycle tour downtown on the same day as the deadline, only because I hadn't come up with a decent idea.
I saw the swans in a distance, playing on the Reykjavík pond and I just started shooting.

I rotated the pic a bit, croped and did minor img. adjustments. Added the border and voila!

This is an excellent composition and crop. I really like how the swan looks back against the body. The lighting is great. I hope you do well!

Good tones and lighting. I feel that the cropping is a bit too tight, and the image lacks flow.

there's a certain humor to this shot, thought I don't know that I can put my finger on it. Nice. -7-

Very elegant. Beautifully composed. The square look is a bit odd, but it doesn't take away from the beauty of this photos. 10

Good composition. I think you had a hard job finding the right exposure. There's a small blown out area at the top and the body is a hint to dark. But these are just minor problems. 8.
