Congratulations goes out to Tod Grubs of Spicewood, Texas! Thanks for your comments and you should be receiving the AirPort Express in the mail very soon! And thanks to the others who participated!
Here's a shot I took while out waiting for the light to get right while shooting Austin from Lou Neff Point at Zilker Park with Van Sutherland. We were shooting right by the water and there were lots of ducks and other waterfowl around. Right in front of us came this big ole swan. He kind of shooed some of the other ducks out of there for a bit. Kind of cool to see.
Also as an extra, I'm trying something that David Nightingale does on his blog... David's blog shows the beautiful photos that he creates and at the bottom right of each, he has a link that states, "Show the original." From there you can see the pre-processed shot straight from the camera. On this page, if you mouse-over the picture, you will see the original shot as it was straight from my camera. The shot that you see when not mousing over the shot is my final version after some tweaks in Photoshop CS5 with the Nik Software Package. I would love to hear your thoughts on which shot you like better!

I hope you enjoy the shot and thanks for dropping by.
