You could not have asked for a better BG, wing angle or quality of light on this swan. Well done.

A bit tight in the frame, but overall an excellent image. Love the light and exposure. Nicely done.

Many thanks to everyone for taking the time to comment. I agree that I could have cropped a bit more loosely but not much as the bird was about 2/3 full frame.

Chris, I like the crop as it is. Even though the wings are close to the edges, the head is well placed because of the large wingspan. This crop show off the detail better than a looser crop. I also like the water and fall colors as a background.

Lovely shot- I like the crop, as it gives a feel of being right there.
