the red would have stood out a lot even quite a bit less saturation than this... like this I think it is distracting.

Some foreground, or background would do this one good.

The beaks look over saturated to me.

how did you manage to get 7 - A+ for patience

I can't believe you found seven swans. Beautiful sharp focus and colors in beaks. 8.

The selective desat would have been fine, but the beaks are a bit too saturated.

Adds interest to have upped the red!6

I think you went over the Top a Wee Bit on the Saturation.
Good Luck Though

A tad over-exposed. Have you boosted the colour saturation? The swans bills look a little unnatural.
Nonetheless, well done for getting a shot with seven swans in!

Finally one that meets the challenge AND looks good. Mine met the challenge which is more than I can say for most but it wasn't "wow" great. Great capture and post work.

Holy wow at the color!!!!! LOVE it!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The colors in this shot are more or less uniform except for the swans' beaks, which gives it an interesting partial color effect. Nice!
