OMG, Abi! This is spectacular! Whoever saw a black swan! And we're not talking about no ugle duckling, either! You have PPed this perfectly. I love it and am putting it in my Likeys.

Since you have the Red up, the ONLY thing I might want to do if this were mine is to clone out that wee foot (?) on the right. Or did you leave it in on purpose?

NIce one Abi. I would have cropped off the top. You probably left it there to depict depth, but I think its sort of distracting.
Photography by Abi: i disagree, i included it so people can tell where the reflection on the water was coming from, without it would look out of place..

Oh nice... It's as if they sailed over a gold sea...
Stunning, simply stunning and I agree about the top don't crop it.
Very very nice shot smile

Abi, you lucky, lucky thing! I've only ever seen one black swan and that was in Aberdeen Harbour absolutely years ago, I think it was lost.

This is a gorgeous picture, and I think the colours are wonderful.

I think the bright line at the top adds perspective and makes a nice frame too.

I love this picture, Abi. Swans (as I've said before) are my favorite birds. So elegant and beautiful. I love the feel this picture provides, and the colors too.
