They say never work with animals or children. Should we add swans to the list?

Great shot Andy, works well with them

It's not the swans Andy. Me thinks you got a cracker here.

I'm generally a fan of "the scene is what it is"...and therefore don't bother cloning out power lines or lampposts and stuff.

As for waiting for things to get out of the way, I think these swans fit into the picture perfectly, Andy.

Gorgeous light and shot.

Besides, at that time of the day, the light changes so quickly. If you'd waited for the swans to go, you might've lost some colour.

Such stunning serenity Andy, I'm glad you included the swans they add so much to this image. I normally like to include wildlife and farm animals in my landscape, they usually add interest unless they are looking away from the camera or doing something silly. I agree with Andrew I don't like to clone things out unless they look completely out of place
