that's a better size since yeaterdays..assuming you still ant the critique, it's a lovely pose, just a few niggles..

I'd suggest cropping a bit from the right to put the swan a wee bitless central with room on the left to move into the shot..the exposures, not a bad effort for vry hrash contrasty light conditions but there's a danger of some burning out to white in the bright areas of the neck and (swan's) right wing - a little play with curves might pull the bright areas in a little bit if you're up to that.
finally, it's a little bit soft looking. is the original sharper than this? if so it's quite possibly been softened by the uplod process - try a final low-level sharpen on the prepared image for upload as the last thing before you upload it

Amnyway, hope that's some use, thanks for getting back
