    I still have trouble photographing swans without the white washing out.

    Have to really underexpose to get definination, as I am sure you know. Are you shooting Raw with your 20d? If you are it should give you some leeway when you are manually adjusting. Picture looks good all the same.

    I do shoot raw with all shots. Maybe I will use the swan for my manual white balance. Thanks for the tip. Much appreciated.

    As I still use film I don,t know about digital but I would imagine you can,t expose for shadows and highlights on the one frame so you have to make a choice,still, your photo looks well exposed to me,good luck.

    I've been chasing gulls around, trying to get good detail on the grey and white without the washout(without much luck I might add).

    This shot is not all that bad for washout, and the detail you did get is very good.

    BTW, I like this photo a lot. :thumbup:

    Totally agreed... if Only the swan was in the middle of the pond instead of near the edge.
