Merry Christmas to all of my great EPZ friends

This shot reminds me of how I felt yesterday. I may have looked calm but like the Swan - under the water my feet were paddling away like crazy with so much to do in what seemed like a short weekend - my washing machine decided to pack up halfway through a load never to work again - so there was I at the launderette dealing with a weeks washing rather than out with my beloved camera in the lovely sunshine that we had yesterday!

I am off to the dentist to have a filling replaced today - what fun Smile

Check out my news section for my conclusion to Ade_mcfade's experiment Smile

This is such a lovely shot! I like the processing you have applied here from the b'blown out whites on the swans back to the subtle shades of down closer to the water.

Terrific work!

Andy

PS Good luck at the dentist!

Very beautiful - elegant, graceful, simple. And the reflection just slightly broken by ripples, which is always more satisfying to my eye.
I guess this is an epz-friendly upload, but this is the season of friendship to all men (and women)!
Have a great Christmas, I'll catch up with your news section next.

PS I agree entirely - we do what we do for the love of it, and the learning process - I'd hate to be calculating 'friendliness' ratings every time I lifted the camera!
