    Went out to get shots in general, and the town swans were so close.
    I really like them especially the first one. I'd appreciate some C&C, people have been crapping on my flickr recently, IDK if im in a slouch, or I need to practice my LR3 more, whatever. Might just be what people are interested in.
    But yes, I'd really appreciate some feedback.
    Here we go!
    When I shot it was REALLY overcast.

    Those white birds can be tough to expose, even on a cloudy day! Nice captures on all!

    First pic seems a tad hot on the whites, not sure why since you had cloud cover. I always under expose white birds a stop or two myself.

    I have also learned from others to try and shot at the water level...looks like you were shooting downwards.

    Nice job and TFS!

    I agree with Eric. These would be much better (especially the first one) if you weren't shooting from above.

    Yeah completely agree.
    The land I was on was naturally elevated a little, but I could have squatted.
    no excuse haha

    Thanks for the kind words and advice.
