Classic Swan pose that you captured well but what makes this unusual IMHO is the UE BG which the exposure of the white swan just right and provides a superb contrast.
Well done and TFS!

I can't work out how to put a million smileys on this shot! :) lol.
Seriously, this is possibly, probably, one of the best Swan shots on TN.
This has gone straight into my favourites theme :D
Very, very well done,

What a splendid swan's capture!
I really like very much the details seen on the white feathers, the slight underexposure worked great for it.
You caught it in a gorgeous pose, and the reflections works great for the image and the composition.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.

A beautiful swan posing perfectly for you. I love the feathers! Beautiful colors and sharp details. The reflections and the ripples in the water are lovely.

Your picture shows well the grace end elegance of this beautiful bird.
As for exposure my advice is to continue doing it this way – is perfect!
(In my opinion the most important for a picture is the focus. Colour balance and exposure you can correct after, especially from RAW)
excellent capture, you have managed the exposure well here, the dark bg makes the shot special, liked the pov and the composition, the refections on water looks great,
very well done,
tfs & regards

This is the perfect photo of serenity to me.The lighting and reflections show well. I had one of these attack my camera once trying to photograph it. A bit wary now except from a distance.
Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Wow, this is an impressive capture of this beautiful bird Deborah. Tones of colors, exposure, lightning and details are outstanding! What a beautiful picture, I'm amazed. Those dark tones and deep blue color of the water are superb! You managed exposure perfectly! I have tried to photograph them recently and this is not an easy thing to do. Congratulations on a fantastic capture!

I don't think you need to worry about the technical quality here - it is a brilliant capture! The dark surrounds makes it look very exciting and your exposure is excellent.
Very sharp details and I love the dark blue ripples on the water.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

I have just been reading the other critiques about your picture and there is nothing to add.
The metering looks very good to me and the portraiture is really good. We all need to be self critical of our photo's but I can see nothing that I would alter about this picture.

A beautiful "showboating pose" captured.This is elegant.
The colours are deep and well saturated and the whites well exposed.
Nicely composed in the frame.The reflection on the rippled water is wonderful.
The low POV is used well.
hard to resist that elegance and beauty, indeed. Not only the swan's, but also this presentation's. Tack sharp details, a well considered strict side view, brightness reduced to show finest shades of whites and hide any distracting elements from around to create an iconically reduced image.
Thank you. With best regards,

This photo is absolutly fantastic... Proudly nice pose of this swan. Excellent contrast and details on white plumage. Black BG is perfectly done to increase beauty of this bird and the lovely reflect on water.

Mute swan are common but your shot is not ! The pose of this male is superb here !!!
The "+++++" : smart subject and great pose, POV, sharpness, DOF, good exposure of white, good contrast white / dark blue, useful complementary note...
The "-" : perhaps more space on the right side...
Well done and thanks for sharing,

Beautiful capture of the Mute Swan. The lighting and BG are outstanding and the details are the best I've seen. The water looks surreal surronding the Swan. Excellent Image. This is the level of talent I'd like to attain!! TFS
