    I love the beautiful curve of the neck and puffed up chest. Good details, but I do feel stopping down the the f/8 or so for the tight portrait would have been even better for the parts of the body just slightly out of dof range. Great texture to the neck feathers!

    The "S" the neck makes is great. Detail looks good as well. The red eye and bill are another plus. Solid background as well.

    Joe, I like this image and the details including feathers on the nose.

    Might could use a bit more room on the top and I could suggest a tad more punch on the mid tones as the 'black' swan feels a touch washed out.
