A local lake where, currently we have around 40 swans. Got some great shots over the day and this one practically caught me off guard. Blew up exposure to get the water whiter, messed with levels and contrast, USM and sized, saved for web.

Swans are so gorgeous, but the FG OOF bird is not helping this any.

Love his wings! Don't like the swan in front right, might consider cloning out

Nice action, but too over-exposed. Also, take a little more care with framing your shot. If you watch the swans for long enough you will learn to anticipate how they are going to behave and are more likely to be ready to make the most of the moment.
