    This kind of swan has a beautiful face, though it looks a bit "uppity" in the first photo (;)). But Photo 3 reveals all its beauty. The "green" water makes the white swan really stand out ... and you apparently know how to expose on the white so it did not all blow out. I think I would have wrongly exposed photos all over...

    I once met a famous wildlife photographer called Andy Rouse and one thing he said always to do with digital and wildlife is to underexposse by 2/3 of a stop, that way you don't burn out the whites and you can always brighten up the shadows.

    The only time I ever overexpose a shot is when I'm at an airshow and taking shots of flying planes then I overexpose by about 1 to 1 1/3 of a stop
