nicely composed shot Ryan won`t mention the horizon Smile lovely warm reflected light on the water from the sun.
The swan is a good FG interest as is the water ripples,well taken.

Hi Quinny,

Great image and dramatic lighting but as it's been said the horizon is not straight.

(I usually Select All - Select - Transform Selection, right click on image - skew and just pull up the lowest side from the corner and click on the tick. There are probably some other ways of straightening horizons but this method works for me. Also if you press CTRL + , you get a grid to make sure that it is straight. If you know all this already, my humblest of apologies.)

Goo shot with nice lighting and the swan in right place. But as Andrew says the horizon lets it down. I usually use the ruler along the horizon, go to rotate canvas and select arbitary and say OK

Lovely light & colour ... the swan bathed in light

you know I knew nothing about PS until I started here, I used to get stuck so many times but with the help of others & just playing with PS on an image to see what each thing did you get used to it ...
a simple way to straighten your horizon is just click
select rotate canvas
then select arbitrary
you then tilt it either to the right or left in .25 --- .05 ... 1,2, 3 & so on till you get it level not hard just need to practice
I'm about always happy to help, just send me a message, I'll help if I can ... thanks Paddy

Well, the light and the composition is just great. And now you know everything about the horizon, too...
