I've never shown my photographs either, so i'm new to this too....What a brilliant picture though. It looks as though you could reach out and touch the swan. Good Luck

Welcome to EPZ. Its a great site, with lots of friendly advice. The swan in background is distracting, so I would have been tempted to clone it out. Look forward to your next upload. Michael

Hello and welcome to the site. as mentioned above, the swan in the background is a bit distracting. Good effort for your first pic.

Hi gugs thanks for all your comments. Just not sure how best to go about cloneing in general. Anyone got any tips on that one or places on the web where I might be able to fine out? If all goes to plan I will put up "swan mark two"! Thanks again.

I think there should be some video clips in the help section that demonstrate how to use the clone tool. Once its given you the basic idea the best way to get good at it is probably just to play around with it, and clone out parts of images just, to see that how well you can do it! etc. when i got paint shop pro i spent ages cloning out clutter in a living room and stuff off tables and daft stuff like that just for practise. i realise iv rambled but hope that helps in some way.

well done Karen and welcome to tEPZ. Its a great place to be and learn, but be warned its addictive!!
I agree that you need to have a go at cloning out the other swans bits!. Its not brainsurgery but just required patience, I'm not good at either!!. Good luck and enjoy
