    Thank you, everyone for your comments & voting for my photo.

Mrsawyer, it is not the sun, but a light on a pole(think streetlight), of which there are several beside the sidewalk that surrounds this pond/small lake. I also find the difference in color interesting, but that is how it appeared. I did not adjust the color, of either the reflection or the swan's beak, to make them match.

I cropped it as square. In my image size app, I sized it 900x900, but frankly didn't check it for "squareness", and haven't done so yet.

    It is intriguing that the yellow sun makes an orange reflection that matches the swan's bill. Too bad the eye is not more distinct. The photo is so close to square, I must ask why you chose not to make it a square photo?

    This is a really lovely shot that meets the theme beautifully. I like the way the vertical orange reflection mimics the long neck of the swan. In my favourites.

    The subtle matching of color makes this image perfect for the challenge. I love the way the swans beak points to the reflected light in the water. Nicely composed. High in my favs.

    Kudos, did a very nice job of the color match req. and getting a lovely photo. Small thing, but since is is so close to the yellow light, would have cloned out the white blob on end of bench(?) below and to left (facing)

    I think that if the land portion at the top was cropped away, my eyes would have seen the matching orange quicker.

    Nicely shot, and an excellent incidental color match with orange beak and reflection. Understand these guys all belong to the Queen - do you need to get her to sign a model release?

    Flat light makes for somewhat dull tones overall. Square cropping is normally better with a symmetrical subject. It gives a static feel to an image.
