Just realised I didn't fill this in!

There were loads of swans on this lake, but the sky was white very boring I decided to put an orange graduated sunset filter on and I just loved the results :)

Pretty much minimal editing, convert from raw leveling horizon as I had to shoot this away from my eye to get the camera closer (shot at 10mm) and then curves and levels.

I'm one of your 9's. This deserves a better placing than it got. I'm sure the red color threw a lot of people off, though it works for me.

I like the perspective (ETA:thinking to fast) though not too fond of the red color cast.

(I'm sure the original comment didn't make any sense to you. ;o))

He looks like a swan with attitude!

You have a very red hue across this shot, not sure if it was intentional as it's very obvious, but I don't think it helps at all.

I like the perspective of the rightmost swan, and that it has water dripping from its mouth. Nice capture.
