It's fine, plenty of detail in the highlights and it's sharp enough. One slight crit would be to have left more space in the right of the frame for it to "look into".

Brilliant timing and superb light. You don't see swans captured in this way very often.

This is a special shot, Phil. The lighting is beautiful and the quick click of the shutter captured that split second of a wonderful display.

What is it with Phils and birds yesterday?? LOL
