Too saturated for my taste, but nice composition and reflection.

Really vibrant. The composition is beautiful as is the reflection. Well seen and captured.

Wonder if your Gunnera is the Chilean or Brazilian version. The latter grows up to 10ft in height. Mine is its "little cousin"!

The reeds are beautiful but, for me the swans are an unnecessary distraction. I think this is the kind of shot where `less is more' and you don't need anything more than the reeds and their reflection. The out-of-focus/misty background fits with the tonality of the image so that's not a problem but the swans are a bright, shiny thing, right at the edge of the frame, which grabs the eye and throws it out of the photograph.
