[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the second Black swan post I have done.
The notes can be read from the first post.

This is an attempt at cloning out another swan and adjusting the shadows highlights on CS.
I have posted the original as a workshop.

Thanks for looking

Lovely composition Alan, the feather definition is great for a black subject.
I agree with Pieter about the shallow water.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful Alan! I love your black Swan series. :) Razorsharp details and good presentation & composition. Well done! I like the undeep and clear water! Cloning worked for me. :)

Alan, Good colors, detail & exposure with the black plumage well-defined. This water is so still it's almost not visible! TFS!

Very nice photo Alan,
very good point of view, good composing shot. The only thin I miss in this one is the eye contact with the bird. I think eye contact is very nice for a photo, farther great job

Hi Alan, yep I think it looks much better with the cloning. Nice composition and framing maybe a teeny bit soft in focus on the head but that's all. Good work.

Hi Alan
Good exposure on the blacks, very nice pose of the model, I like the affect of light and shadow in the water too.

Bonne définition pour fair resortir le noir. Bonne prise et félicitations.

You did a great job on this one Alan. The shallow water adds a nice effect. The exposure of the black is perfect. Very well done.

Alan, a great photo. Excellent sharpness and contrast. You managed to capture the details of the black feathers, and that's difficult.

Very nice job.
