Nice orange hour colors from either the sunrise or the sunset. Pretty mirror images on calm water. These Swans are so elegant!

Very peaceful especially at the morning light. I took out some of the blue-ness of the swans. Just a thought though.   Posted: 01/11/2020 14:58:40

Hi Lamar. You have captured a very peaceful scene.Love the muted colours. You have captured a pleasing depth of field with the foreground swans sharp and the background swans much softer.Did you consider a pano crop as I feel the background landscape does little for the story? As the swans are the feature I would have made them more to the forefront. Only a suggestion. Cheers Glenn.   Posted: 01/17/2020 01:47:09

Hi Lamar,

This is a nice image that feels relaxing to view. I find the reflections to be interesting. I do like the version with some blue removed from the swans. My only other suggestion would be to lighten the head and neck areas of the two central swans facing each other just enough to bring the viewers eye to that part of the image.
