Good capture, showing the not-so-graceful side of a swan's character.

Beautiful shot, nice choice of B&W. It doesn't convey the message of conflict by itself.

this would be ten... marvelous natural threatening position very well captured, great in black and white, very dynamic thanks to the movements of the wings, center composition works very well here - what else could one possibly want in a winning "conflict" photograph? this is powerful!

Great capture. The best swan photo I've seen on here I think. The motion in the wings and on the water and the use of black and white make this a very artistic image. 10

This image shows a conflict between the Viewer / photographer and the subject. The lower shutter speed, while keeping the head, body and water in focus, allows motion blur of the wings to show the aggressive nature of the defensive subject. Good display for this category (score = 8)

The shows the probability of a conflict. Nice shot, was this hissing towards the stranger with a camera?

Nice capture of motion. I would scorethis higher if I could see what the swan was in conflict with. I know it's you, but the picture would be more powerful with the object of conflict included. I like the choice of B/W

Good capture, they can be feisty. Not sure I like the b&w for this, but then I didn't see the color.

the b/w looks great

Should be winner of Title of the Week, if such an award was ever bestowed. good scary action shot - a bit more swan and less water courtesy of a zoom in might have focused attention more on the subject matter... but still, grat shot. 9.
