    This family came up to a little beach to do their extensive morning bath (i.e. putting their oil into their feathers)

    It is not hard to guess how I managed to get this close-up of the swan, is it? ;)

    And this one seems to wonder if he is beautiful enough:

    Oh wow, I love how the light hit the swan's feathers in that last shot. Neat reflection as well. They are so beautiful!

    Thank you.
    I had a hard time exposing when I took the beach scenes (I was stationary at the time and not on the moving boat, we were moored for the night and this was early morning) and I underexposed like mad and still find part of the standing swan's (3) feathers got too bright ...

    Great shots in #4 and #6! :thumbup:

    I'm fascinated with shots of swans now after my attempts a couple of months ago. They are so hard to expose for & the camera meter always seems to get it wrong!

    Ohhhh, love those last two!! In the closeup you can even see the ridges in its mouth. And the light/reflection/colours in the last one are breathtaking. Way to go!
