IMHO this is overprocessed. I never did quite get this kind of processing. Nothing personal, just my taste...

not too hip on your processing. makes it look fake.

The swan is beautiful. The reflection, to this viewer, is a distraction due to its color.

Not at all keen on the post processing.

The swan is good. the rest is just too artificial.

Wow. His reflection on the water is really neat!

The post processing here is a little yucky. Sorry, that is the best way I could describe it. It looks too processed.

Intriguing shot

I'm thinking the editing went too far. The lines outlining the swan and the shadow in the water make the image look unreal. <5>

IMO this would have been stronger without the processing. Makes it look fake.

I don't care for the cartoon look of the reflection. The swan is lovely and the coloration and detail is great. The black background shows off his red beak and the ilght on his back, but that reflection has me baffled. :~Z

the reflection looks wrong. like you have burnt the entire background out.
Not sure I like this black on black, but over all the image is nice.

This is a worthy photo but diminished by the stark and (probably over processed) backgound and by the reflection. Nice commercial art and I can visualize it in an ad, but not here.
