Peapack Swan

Continuing the dark mood of the week, this shot goes back to April, 2011.  My post-processing at that time (see bottom) involved photoshopping the watery background into black and white, leaving the swan in color.  Taking a second look today, I decided to go all the way black in the background to create a more dramatic backdrop for the swan and water details in the foreground.  Once again though, the objective going forward is to better visualize this at the time of capture to get nearer to the result in-camera with less dependence on post-processing.
