Fantasies

Although I walked the dog this morning, it was without my camera because - it was raining!! Oh what a surprise - after all, it is summer in the UK therefore I shouldn't be surprised!! OK - we both got some much needed exercise and fresh air - and that was about it.

So what today then?

When seeking an opinion about yesterday's swan pictures, it was pointed out to me, with great diplomacy, that they were overexposed! Now that is really annoying! Not that it was pointed out to me, but that the statement is correct - they are over exposed.

So that got me around to playing with the exposure, levels etc. to a greater extent than I would normally. And I decided to get creative. Some of you may like them, some of you may not like them at all.... Conjuring with pictures is a very personal view....

The swan photos are lovely...although I thought they looked OK before as well! We take swans for granted because they are so common but they very beautiful. BW Goosey

Goosey - thanks; they were rather overexposed unfortunately but glad you like them.

Thanks Tom :)

Hi Tricia

The pictures of the swans are lovely.

I recognise the Swan detail difficulty, Tricia and it is a pity they were over exposed. Yet I'm sure they'll be different next time. Could it be that you're still getting used to Shutter priority instead of Aperture priority{my preference too}?

I still cannot take pics in Shutter P. without over exposure.
Great post.

Great dramatic white swans on black background, you're not doing too much wrong in my mind

Tom, ST, OC, Lynmiranda and Border - thanks... much appreciate.

Yoke - I usually use AV (aperture priority)- but the white/black syndrome often catches me out!
