This is very good Marie-Josee. I love the simplicity of the image. The orange background looks a little murky though. It may benefit from pushing the vibrance a little. The foreground silhouette is a a little fuzzy but again that can be sorted by creating a new outline with the free select tool and then smudging or cloning the orange up to the new line. A quick wipe across the new edge with a fuzzy blur brush and you will have a sure winner. The orange puts me immediately in mind of Fernando Kaskais work but he uses very bright orange that grabs you and does not let go. Excellent work.

I agree with Steve. Good work. You should have told the third one to keep its mouth shut!
If you are not sure of the post-processing techniques he wrote about just make another post with your questions and I'm sure he will explain what he means. He's very, very nice! I remember you saying that your first language is not English, so some of the words used may require explanation.

Nice work Mariejo. The colour and simplicity are great. I assume you used a small amount of panning to catch the swans in flight and they are nice and sharp. Well done.

Yeah, you're right Donald....as a beginner, learning to use my camera is one thing, post processing is an other.. So I don't understand much what was said but will look into it... so, it's a beginning...I keep trying...thanks for all comments... here's the original...didn't do much with it...!!

Another crop that may work, is to crop out the bottom silhouette and a very small portion from the left/right sides.
Call it "Flight".
