FWIW, I kinda like this one. The branches/reeds are related to your subject, because it's the environment in which the swan lives. To me, it's got a title like "Secret Beauty." The branches hold back the beautiful swan, keeping it just out of visual reach for the viewer. But the way it's framed, you get this little bit of space between the branches where you can clearly see the neck.

I'm far from a professional (or a judge) but I still think it's cool.

Yes all the feedback helps. I'm so excited for spring due to this new camera lol. I'd love to get another new lense. I'm slowly saving up

I do like the idea behind the shot

maybe play with different crops and colour temperatures. If you can crop a bit tighter and try different ratios

It is a fine picture and I like it a lot.

Very surprised for some commentaries from people that "know" about photography and the different manifestations.

Sorry if this is off-topic, but how do you make that effect where the back image is out of focus, and the front is in focus, or vice versa. Is it something with the aperature?
