Incredible closeup, very in your face type shot. Incredible display of textures in the bird, from the soft feathers , the roughness of the black forehead to the smooth texture of the beak. "10"

Great picture, I like the fact that I can see the pores on the beak and by the eyes. This should do very well in the challenge.

Excellent close-up, great definition, detailing, colour. Long lens or patience? I actually think it's too close to do very well here - the real grace in the animal is lost when you get so close, and they start to look more like the bruisers that they are - and ugly don't do so good on dpc. Top woork though.

Very nice close up. Should the title have been feather of a bird ? Nice colors. Scored it high.

[World Record Attempt]
+ Excellent and interesting way to show textures (is this a crop or did you really get so close with your camera?). Nice framing, great sharpness and colours.
- Can't think of any.

Has to be telephoto...no swan would let you that close.
Great image..well done

This super closeup is a great take on the challenge. A catchlight would be perfection, but the capture of textures is beautifully done. Hope we read in your notes what (who) this bird is!

Very Crisp! I have swans it my harbour but they cause lens damage when I get this close!
