Thanks for your kind words Patti
I was nervous about putting my pics here at first but my confidence has been boosted! And as for that swan pic I messed around with curves and came out with this:
Here's some more shots I've got as well:
Taken with 40D at a shutter speed of 500 with an ISO of 100 on Shutter Priority mode.
Old photo taken of some Heron like bird at Sea World in Florida, I got really close to it and got a shot in Macro mode on my Fujifilm S9600.
This was taken in 2006 at my first visit to Sea World, my Dad got this with a simple Pentax point and shoot camera but I think it came out quite pretty
