Well done for shooting in RAW Lin, I do occasionally and must say you've got a superb reflection there.

Perfect timing on this shot. Regarding your RAW processing -- you are way ahead of where I was when I first started with RAW. This shot is very nicely done.

Great light and action.

I tried shooting in the raw once, but got too cold so I put my clothes back on again!

As we say; Way to go! Beautiful in flight image and composition. Love the way you handled the tough lighting and kept the details in the swans feathers and features. Terrific work.
