Hi Debz. well you done it again. the colour the detail and compostion. all great. well done. TFs.
very beautiful Deborah. The Swan looks so elegant and ther is so much details in the wing feathers. Exposure is awesome. I also like the Creamy green Bokeh. You have two spots on your sensor that you may want to clean off a little to the left of the swan. ;)

Great shot. Really nice details on the feathers. Lovely control of the light and great BG.
Nice texture in the feathers, well separated from the background...

I love it! So cute the way he is covering part of his face. The details of the feathers is marvelous. Wonderful colors, especially against the black bg. I like the comp too.
c'est super,les details du plumage ressortent vraiment bien et l'exposition est bonne.
seule deux petites taches restent sur le vert,tu aurais pu les supprimer avec PS CS2
les deux petites taches sont en bas a gauche sur la partie verte mais c'est tres leger.

Wonderful sharp details of this Swan preening itself. Well-timed shot, great sharpness and beautiful light. Looks great against the dark background.
TFS and have a nice weekend, Ulla

Nice image, a very well managed exposure. Nice composition too. Nice colours and a beautiful smooth background. It looks like the focus is on the feathers nearest us (beautiful detail there) but it should really be on the eye. Nice job on the sharpening, I think high-pass tends to work very well on fur and feathers.
I saw the spots in the background as well, they look more like cloning marks to me. Best way to check for sensor dust is to find a piece of wall or paper or something that is a mid-tone and uniformly plain (flat magnolia wall would be perfect), take some images of that and check them for spots. If you have any sensor dust you will be able to see the spots. To be a bit more thorough, if you have a plain wall take pictures of different areas of it. If you have sensor dust you will see the same spots in the same part of the frame on the different images. I wouldn't overclean the sensor, for a Canon once every 3-6 months should be fine.
Sensor dust will not affect auto-focus. It will just produce spots on your images.

Hi Deborah. This is such a good detailed focus. I like the little way he hides in his feathers.
No worries on the dust throwing focus off.

for one time I don't see a very good shot of yours.
no good head position, much central. model "one shot, one kill".
on shadow there's a blu colour. you can reduce it with ps.
one point becouse you can to do best.
