f4, ISO 1/640, ISO 400
Well I could have done 2 things to help myself - firstly I could have got down for a much lower angle, I got really close to the swans and they were not paying much worry to me being there, but I was not getting down into the mud in what I was wearing! so it was a crouch shot at best.
Secondly I could have got my flash out and tried to get a more lowkey effect and use a lower ISO - but I didn't want to risk spooking the birds.
I feel that this shot is lacking something - maybe a crop - or maybe I should go more and edit the background towards lowkey (I like lowkey)
