Somthing a little different from your usual swan photo. This swan was in shallow water preening itself and I was able to get quite close without disturbing it. When I opened this shot my instant thought was that it looked as thought it was spinning on the water. This was emphasised by the position of its head - tucked down like that it appeared to be streamlineing itself so as to get a better spin! I tweaked the impression a bit by adding a slight radial blur centred on the swans head and adjusted the water in curves as I wanted it to appear to be in deeper water (it was actually stood up).
