I love swans, and get down the canal and Rivers Thames and Kennet whenever I am able.

Yes as a matter of fact I do. 515theartist.blogspot.com. I am having a bit of trouble photographing my paintings. I have a question you may be able to help me with.
There are a few images that I have seen on here that I wanted to paint, but after talking with a friend and being concerned about plagiarizing, I wanted to know how close or far do have to be from the original in order not to cause conflict with the originator. I had just started painting again back in August and have seen a few things here, mostly photos. but not all they have to be like special to me.

tremendous, a moment frozen in time. Quite a feat to get both wings, entirely focused and great splashes of water. The light hits in all the right places. KUDOS!
