Its a nice scene and well timed. You were very close at 50mm or quite far off and cropped closer?

Two points, - it needs to be rotated CCW to get it level, and the white balance, of around 3200 is much too cool, - at least 5500 would be closer. The white of the Swan is a good reference, - use white and not black as a reference.

I have made these two changes in the mod.

With Willie, plus the image is quite flat. I would tweak contrast up a bit. The cygnets are unfortunately not well situated. they need to be looking out towardsthe camera. i know you cannot organise it, but that is the real image here.

It's always worth hanging around a scene like this, and taking more pictures over an extended period of time. Wait and see is a good motto.

Willie has covered the technical and Paul the content.
You can't organise wildlife, you have to have patience to wait for the moment, and that can take some time.
