The Ugly Duckling       ©2009 mbbin2
Panasonic DMC-G1       9th place, 41 points
1/1250s, f4.1, ISO 100, ?, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Converted from raw, resized and sharpened in CS4,       Extra Info: "He saw his reflection in the clear water. To his amazement, he was no longer a dark gray bird, awkward and ugly. Instead, his neck had grown lond and graceful, and his feathers were as white as snow. To be born in a duck's nest in a barnyard makes no difference to a bird hatched from a swan's egg. The ugly duckling had grown into a beautiful swan."
Hans Christian Andersen

    Hard to decide my TT as usual, the only thing that makes your pic not to be in is that I feel the colours are a bit mutted, so the pic lacks a bit of "punch" for me... but anyway I have to tell you that the idea is nice for the theme, good eye, and wish you good luck :-)

    Very good idea and execution - pure, natural and out of real world but still fitting very well to the fairy tale theme.

    Nice catch of swan exiting out of water with wings opened. I really like this photo, adding to favorites.

    Had this swam be in water it would have been magnificent. Even with the webbed feet so much in view, it is a nice capture and a good tie to the theme.
