two miani things about photographing swans: first, the exposure on the feathers to ensure there's no areas burnt out tp pure white, and second, that the eye area at least is pin-sharp. the exposure is just held in icely here. if your image editor has a burn briush you could carefully use this over the feathered areas and should see a bit more detail begin to creep in. As for the sharpness, it's a tiny tiny bit soft, and this might well be due to the jpeg upload process. Try a final small (20%) sharpen with unsharp mask on the jpeeg file you've saved ready for upload - it just makes the extra bit of difference.

Hope that's useful
