30 Jul 2012 - 7:13 PM

bearing in mind that my online pc is not calibrated so your own (or other viewers) image may differ to the one i see -

although you have used -ve EC by 2/3, some of the Swan's back seems just a little too highlighted - don't think i could quite justify saying 'blown' - and personally i always try to take animals and people at eye-level

however, in this case i think the positive points outweigh the minor negatives in that you have no background distraction and the Swan's back encompasses the neck and (almost) head nicely.
