Ryan, the detail and beauty in this image took my breath away.
I love how you captured even the tiny water drops along his entire neck.
A must see full screen to appreciate this beauty.

The detail is great in this image Ryan. I think the reflection in the water is awesome! This is interesting in seeing just the elongated neck of the swan and not the entire body. Makes the detail crisper. Cool capture! :))

the reflection, the soft look in the eye, the water droplets, the ripples as he moves through the water......all spectacular!

Hi Ryan, this is absolutely stunning, the colors, the water reflection, and the swan, are so clear, it seems as though I could just gesture to touch the water and I would be there. I gave you a 10 and a thank you! Into favs as well!! Sincerely, Marilyn

Wow. I absolutely love the detail and composition. It's rare for me to see a picture that does a swan justice. I would have loved to see more reflection and less headroom, but that's personal preference. Colors are great as well. I love the water droplets
