This image looks too dark. Not cropping the swan's reflections would have helped too.

Here's my two cents. :)
First of all, the image is underexposed. I can understand that perhaps you wanted a low-key type atmosphere, and I really like them myselve, but I'm not sure it's really working here. Also, I would suggest avoiding cropping off the reflection of the birds, and straightening out the "horizon" in the distance the background. This is an ecxellent concept though - good idea!

Too dark.

nice idea.. could have done with more contrast though?
04/14/2008 08:48:36 PM
Very good idea, the effects are great. It should be just a little lighter though.
04/14/2008 04:21:12 PM
Good concept but a little dull colour wise. I'm sure simple white balance or curves adjustment could have added a lot more vibrant white to the swans and made this a much better shot.
I'd also like to see the very end of the tail and have a little space left and maybe some more of the reflection.

Original for sure. I would like it even more if the 'swans' were, well, whiter!
04/13/2008 06:18:35 PM
Cool minimalist idea, however overall too dark. Better lighting would have given this a lot more impact.
04/12/2008 11:07:00 PM
I dont get it?

Origami swans -- nice idea and lighting.
04/12/2008 10:01:41 AM
The picture would have been better if there was better lighting.
04/11/2008 10:23:49 AM
this is a good shot, but its just too dark. maybe another lighting source or a different background

Good idea, would liked to have seen the image a bit brighter.

Could be a little brighter, but I like the idea!

Sweet idea. A blue background/surface and a little more light would have made this very special :)

great concept...i would have really liked this better if it was lighter.

Nice idea...wish it were brighter and that the reflection was complete.

Very dark, crane cut off (tail & reflection). Lighten and recrop. :)

Too dark, but a very nice idea. Lighten it up a bit so the swans stand out more. Perhaps cropping a bit further out so the whole reflection shows, as well. 5

Nice idea, but you could have done with getting the swans much brighter
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the swans. For me, if they were "swimming" on a dark blue base to suggest water it would have even greater impact or maybe not cutting off the reflection of the foreground swan.

nice origami but poor lighting, a lot more could have been done here.

Could use some better lighting, i like the cropping though

Rather dark and not much landscape

04/09/2008 07:05:51 AM
if this had been composed to show the whole reflection and may be a square format i would have given it 10 but iam giving 8
