Swans and ducks, Pie any, Slovakia

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? I love the slightly off-kilter composition here, with the cluster of birds near the bottom of the frame. This gives a sense of movement and allows the eye to take in the peripheral elements the ripples of the water and the sprinkling of ducks. Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
