the water droplets speak volumns, i like the clear crips line of the face and becoming softer onto the body, great shot

This shows peace well, and not in the sterotyped idea. I love that you captured a water drop falling off the beak. The neck in the miidle balance the picture.

This photograph has very strong contrast. The values of the swan's neck and head puts emphasis on it. The water droplets add texture to the picture also.

I like the water drop from the beak and on the head, this crop does not for me and while his body is out of the Dof it makes it look blown with no details :)

Very nice photo. Great composition and the water drop on the tip of the beak really adds to the shot.

I like the detail on the head, with the water drops, but I'm afraid the remainder of the shot is not appealing for me. Blown out highlights and the comp is not really drawing me in. Perhaps a closer crop on the head may have worked and shown off all the details.

Very nice capture, especially the bill on top of the neck which adds a 3d feel to the shot and the suspended drop of water. Nice DOF although I maight have suggested a slightly different crop so the bill was on a line of third

I love the drop of water but it is too bad that you've lost most of the detail on the bird's back.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2008 10:11:02 AM
I dont really understand?
02/21/2008 10:00:34 AM
Beautiful as an abstract... I'd have liked to have seen an eye. The drops are good!

Wow love the softness of this. The capture of the single droplet coming from the beak is amazing! Tied for the best in the challenge so far. 10
