I like him very much indeed, Janice. Those frilly feathers with the white edges are really beautiful, just like you said. That red beak really stands out. I also like the composition and the POV, and the details are very sharp. Well done and TFS. : )

Nice colours and sharpness.

Janice, very good shot. Great POV and very good details. Good visual impact. TFS.
I like him very much. The pattern of the feathers is unusual - reminds me of a feather duster. Great light, it really shows off the red beak.

Very good lighting and detail, nice frame.
Excellent portrait of this black guy Janice ;-) Especially I like his feathers and water drop on beak. Red colour looks great in contrast to black. Still no sign of cured Canon?

Janice, indeed, its feathers are really great.
A very beautiful capture. The feathers give the shot a different texture. Besides, I like exposure too.

Il est vraiment magnifique ce cygne noir avec ses plumes frisées.
Détails pointus et la goutte d'eau au bout de son bec.

Stunning capture Janice, great details, composition and good exposure. 7/10 Very nice work.
Hi Janice, your photo really shows the beauty of this bird. I occasionally see one of them around here, usually in a city park. The sharpness and DOF in your photo is just right, and the pose of the swan makes it look so graceful. TFS!

Personal assessment of the photo: very good. His back feathers look like petals of flowers.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent
Personal assessment of the note: compete.
Thank you Janice.
These black swans are amazing, especially to northerners such as myself. The lighting is great in this shot, and if I were to have but one wish, is that the center focal point were literally a few centimeters further away - I'd love for the body/tail feathers to be in focus as well.
