Oh how beautiful Steve, she looks a little bashful. Fantastic shot and love the way the bill really stands out, plus the reflections on the rippled water. A great entry to the current contest, if you do, Good Luck

I think she is playing coy, what a beautiful capture, and a fave for me. She seems to be glowing! =^..^=tigs

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

I bet it gets a few 'broadsides' from the warring boats too!

It looks so peaceful!

Perfect example of selective coloring, Steve!

We have a boat on the lake which is made like a big swan. One swan fell in love with it and followed it all the time! Fine shot of the swan Steve.

Smooth seas do not make skilful sailors.

Great picture, it really works well for a wallpaper. It gives good contrast to my icons which are all on the periphery.

The reflection and the great colors makes this a winner, Caruso.

This is a beautiful image and very effective use of selective coloring...I think minimal color and appropriate placing is important and works best and you've got both going for you here...great entry...good luck.

One of the few paintings I still have from my fine art major days in college is nearly a twin of this image. The main difference is the bare tree branches reflected in the water in my swan painting. I'm not sure, though, if I don't like yours better. The addition of keeping the orange bill reflection in the water is what really does it for me. Good luck in the contest—I'm sure you'll do well. -Nik
