Nikolai, I gave this an 8. It was such a huge lot of photos to wade through and had it been a different challenge, I see this as blue ribbon material. Stunning colour and even a great title. Well done. I said it would be in the top 10, but I was wrong. It's amazing what we think is so great, gets voted on very differently to what we think.

Keep up the great work mate!

yet another picture that's about a hundred places short of where it ought to be.

Fantastic work. Congrats on 0 1's and only 1 2!

I like the composition. The coloring looks a bit on the green side to me, but nice photo overall.

Not a swan fan myself, but the colours are lovely and it's great how the reflected clouds echo the shape of the swan

The success is in the mirroring of the swan by the mirrored clouds, but you knew that of course. 9.

Lovely image. I like the color and composition. Resembles an oil painting. I think it would be outstanding with a tad more contrast.

STUNNING. The turquoise water with the cloud reflection - wow. The goose mimics the shape of the clouds. This is spectacular! 10
