Nice to see you back hope your shoulder starts improving for you, lovely shot of the cygnet preening himself some nice details in his plumage, nice to see him in action rather than usually you see swans gliding along the water.

Very elegant, even while preening! Nice to see you back and fingers crossed the shoulder continues to feel much better.

I think the photo has a strong yellow colour cast. I removed this by using the Colour Balance tool in PS. I also cropped the image as I thought the left side and top didn't help the composition. A slight increase in contrast using curves added an extra pop to the photo.

Another lovely capture of this young swan, they are better for capturing the detail in the feathers when they are this young, and you have done this beautifully.....I do like the colour corrected mod, shows your shot off to a tee.
Hope the shoulder benefits from the injection soon.

Welcome back Ian, and with such a super shot as well! My hubby empathises with you as he is suffering with a really painful shoulder at the moment. The injection he had hasn't helped though Sad

Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Hope the injection is working.
My preference would be V2, but two super captures.
