Sharp in the right places and the wing blur adds movement to the image. Try a crop which gives him/her a bit of space to fly into. Nice shot. Rich.

Thanks for the information. Do you mean I should leave more space in around the swan? I can't give him/her much more space on the right, however by just drawing out a bit, it does look better.

Idealy you need more space on the right for him to fly into so he is more off to the left. If there is nothing of the image on that side you can sometimes get away with increasing the size of the canvas in elements or whatever software you have and clone into it, (if that makes sense). This is quite difficult to hide though and you can't stretch the image all that much, but its worth a go. Thanks for responding. Cheers, Rich.
