Taken at my local pond late evening at ISO 500 so the sky looks a bit grainy.
used a flash fill with slow sync and was hand held right at water level to get this perspective( no chance of using a tripod in that situation!) Any way it was an experiment which brought acceptabel results.

I find that taking this low angle usually provides the best results when photographing swans....I've had a bit of practice!
Nice shot !
