The Conbditions were really Poor on the Day as I was out with My Brother in Law ( Morty )
Have you any idea how difficult it is to capture Seven Swans !

Hope you think it was worth the effort though.

Cheers.

Good work framing just 7. Seems like a a slight bmp in contrast wouldn't hurt.

A nice shot. I think a little more contrast and saturation would do good for the picture. Annoying to have the rear cut of the nearest swan.
