When I try to photograph swans they either come out brilliant white with no feather detail, or I under expose usually to about -1.7ev and get the detail but the rest of the photo, particularly the water is too dark.
Apart from adjusting the exposure, what other ways can I get a decent picture of a swan?

Posted By SKavanagh : I v have just brightened it up slightly with a few layers moved the swan off centre and cloned in the water to the left hope you like it.
If you cant get the other side of the bird try a bit of fill in flash
