Gary: Beautiful birds. I might like a tighter shot on the pair on the right but this wider view works well. I might be inclined to bring up the whites a bit for a touch more pop. >=))>

Gary, the “collection” of swans and their different poses looks great. The bits of floating feathers are a fun (and totally natural) addition that add extra interest in the back.
