I went looking for the swans, but they were far away and I didn’t have a long lens on the camera. It was late in the day and the shadows were long and strangely blue. I played with the image which I liked but clearly needed help to make it pop.
I used several different filters to bring the swan out and reduce the blueness and intensity of the shadow on his feathers. The result is more than a little impressionistic, but not unattractive.
