very graceful curve of the neck but seems a little more threatening than graceful
it is too bad the "shoreline" is there as a crop of just the swan might have worked a little better

I like the photo. The composition is nice, and the image values are great. I'm not 100% sure that it captures grace, but I'm on the edge. Good work.

I really like the composition of this image. The black and white tones are very nice and show alot of detail.

Very nice, I like the reflection. I know this is completely out of your control - but it would have been even better if that swan could have been just a few inches back from shore. :-) Well done!!

Very nice treatment of the subject. It is a pity about the lower left corner foreground. 7

This is changing from white swans. It makes an original image. These birds are naturally gracious, and you've catched that very well. It's sharp, with very nice details on the feathers. Not sure, though, that b/w was a good choice, because we miss beaks yellow/red color and yellow eyes contour. Now, if the water color was not that attractive, I understand. A less closer view would have avoided the not so nice bottom left part.

Wow, absolutely gorgeous! Fantastic contrast between the head of the swan and the water. The reflection is perfect and I like seeing just a hint of the shoreline. I can't say enough about this shot, it's pretty much perfect...and matches the challenge to a "T". Excellent work!
