Cropping the top removed the other swans, but left their reflections. I think the reflections are distracting. You could either remove the reflection, or include the bottom of the swan in the background. I think either would work well.

Also, you cropped off the top, bottom, and left side, but not off the right side. I'd take some off that side too.

The reflections don't bother me. Water always reflects something.

But the crop leaves it looking kind of static somehow. If you are going for the idea of the swan sailing into the frame, try leaving the bottom in so that the bird is at the upper left instead of the upper middle, and see if you like it.

thanks guys - the photo was taken at the wrong time of day, far too bright. but it was fun to try and play around with it. i do find the 'simple' task of cropping challenging and appreciate your comments.
