A beautiful Mute Swan on the Pitt River (BC, Canada) from several years ago. I used DAP Pro and Photoshop mostly...

This is just lovely- the swan is nicely detailed yet painterly, and the soft reflection and background merge beautifully into a misty blend. Exceptional work!

He looks so proud! I love the effect that he seems to be rising from the depths of the water like some mythical creature from the mists of time. Beautifully done, Neil!

You did a terrific work Neil.
Starting from the shot, the pose of the swan which is already beautiful of him,
but the interpretation you have drawn in it enhances it 100 times more. Really a wonderful watercolor.

I agree very much with Mary in that it already is a great shot but your post work is really a terrific compliment to the final image.
