I find this rather beautiful as a composition and as technique. The blown highlight doesn't bother me in the slightest; if anything it draws attention to the subject and composition. I like the graininess, too; it works together with the attitude of the two swans with dreamily romantic connotations. Plus the exposure was well timed. Enviable processing.
What I find really hard to understand is the lack of attention that the image has received.

Has a dreamlike intensity, fleeting but vivid.
And those verticals really work, that's your sense of depth.

Au contraire, I think it fits fine. But it is a very individual face and the road to acclaim is long, as van Gogh never lived to discover. Please don't go lopping your ear off just yet!

It's Sunday. Most people either haven't got up yet, are at the marathon, or if the weather's lovely where they are they're probably at the garden centre. Give them time. Grin

I like it.
