    Michael, Are you suggesting I quit while I'm ahead?

Thank you fc and AC and everyone for your votes and comments. Each one is appreciated. I'm a little surprised at the result to be honest. Full credit to using the smudge tool in GIMP. Original straight out of the cam in outtakes.

    Digixeno I try to remember that half of a good photo is the use of good lighting but I don't always succeed.

Lo Honest there is something about this that bothers me. It looks a little contrived to my taste but the smudging made it work to the extent that it does. See outtakes later.

    good use of light and shade

    The lighting is beautiful, and I think the smudging really adds to the composition. Great composition and detail in the swans and shadows.

    Old Finn. This was shot on top of the surface of a white appliance. The background is a white wall. I think I'll post the original in outtakes.

aoc46 Thanks. Sometimes subtle is better.

AC I'm not so sure, but appreciate your comments.

babysister It worked out better than I anticipated.

Old Finn

    Excellent! The swans are well made, the picture well composed. What did you use as the background? My first choice.

    Nicely shot - like the reflections and subtle color.

    You have a winner here... Shadows and highlights are perfect. So is your composition. Well done with an excellent photo!

    Michael. I'm sure there's a good quick witted reply to that one but since I'm not so quick witted...

Robert Simple is usually easier and odd enough gives a better result. Thanks for the kind comments.

mrsawyer Pleased you like it.

Andris Thanks.

    Rushed the shot. Rushed the PP. Maybe if I played more I might have made it better. Appreciate the positive vote.
