I like it. The way the leaves are out of focus gives it that 'magical' feel to it. Almost enchanting. And the lighting on the swan is fantastic. It gives the bird an extra sense of beauty. Overall the lighting is absolutely fantastic and the shot is perfect.

The colors also stand out. It gives a warm feel to it. It also feels relaxing but at the same time it strums something inside my chest. It is a shot that you'd find in a movie.

The quality is amazing. The image is clear (besides the obvious out of focus leaves) and sharp.

Fantastic work!

I would have zoomed in a little more on the swan and shifted my position to put in a little more of the gold leaves to give it a kind of emerging look. Like I mentioned, it kind of looks magical and the focus is clear, but you could have put a little more detail into it.

Thanks for your point of view, but I have to disagree with you here, sorry.

If I had zoomed in like you suggested, I wouldn't have gotten these small bokeh lights you see in the photo, but a very transparent, almost homogenous area instead. This can be great, but not here. The golden bokeh lights make the photo interesting.

Also, I don't think it would add to the photo if the swan was bigger. The composition needs some space; the photo looks somewhat boring when cropped tightly around the swan. But maybe that's just me ... :)

So, thanks again for making suggestions - I appreciate them although I have a different opinion. :)

Thank you very much for your critique! I'm glad you like this photo. Since you gave 4/5 for technique: What would you have done differently?
