I had my water gear on and waited until a few of these Swans got into an area with a decent BG, then I made sure I was as low as I could be to the water to get the feel I was trying for.... thoughts?

Perfect in exposure, details and framing. You shot from the plane of the swan and that makes viewing even more pleasant. Publishing quality, in my view.

awesome shot mike. i like the composition of this photo. the reeds in the background are far enough away from the subject so that they are nicely blurred thanks to your low angle shot. you also had some reeds to the left of subject to give some scenery to the overall composition. you are a dedicated wildlife photographer to be shooting in the water. i've shot belly flat on dried mud, but i doubt that i would ever get into the water.with all the birding fanatics at my particular wildlife sanctuary, i would probably be harrassed to death about getting off the designated trail. LOL!

Excellent exposure and colors, Mike. I do like a bit of suroundings in wildlife photography, such as the reeds to the left.

Any lower and I would have suspected you of taking this through a periscope :-)
