Hi Rob
Excellent exposure no blown highlights, I think I would spend some time with the cloning tool to tidy things up a bit. V1 for me.

Love the raised ruffles in V2 but probably V4 getting my vote today. Like the positioning of all 3 Swans and the light and colours in the water.

#1/5 is the best of these and the soft focus gives a pleasant, dreamy look. The cloning is very effective but beware of brightening this! #1 is on the verge of being over-exposed and blowing out detail in the swan's feathers; brightening it has led to large areas of the swan's body blowing to pure white or shades so close to it that we can't see the difference.
