I know what you mean , the water patterns always attract me and these are spot on . The swans are an added bonus just in the right place

Like the patterns and tones in this - the swans are a bonus which works well with the image.

I don't think you need the swans, just the light and shadow on the water alone works for me. As you say they are a bonus Smile

I personally think the water is the bonus, lol. It is unusually still, with those strong straight stripes, considering the swans are on the water, and their reflections are a bonus, too. I am now going to try to be very very kind, especially since I know what old age feels like.....the front swan seems to be a little blue, and I wonder if this could be removed selectively?

Excellent composition. I really like the almost graphic appearance of the water.
