Had a 12 hour stay in London on the way to Dubai so we decided to walk around Windsor castle. I've attached two versions. Not exactly the sharpest it could have been...

Cool, I see another photo in there. Take the second version, split the photo
down the center verticaly, the right half of the photo will now become
a cool vertical shot of the swans staging in a straight line. Then switch
the photo to black and white and add a tad of contrast boost and you are
good to go. Hope this helps.

Take care,

Dwayne Oakes

It looks like you had someone ducked down in front holding up a loaf of bread there Gem :D

Either that or Swans find you particularly attractive for some other reason http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/home/smf/Smileys/classic/hihi.gif

Certainly looks much better in the 2nd shot and as Dwayne suggested a few tweaks will help a bit. I've never seen so many swans in one spot before like that!

Dwayne, we appear to be on the same wavelength because I do have a cropped version like how you mentioned! But, it was in colour and didn't quite work for me. Although I'll try it in B&W and see how it goes :) Thanks for the suggestion

I think birds in general just like me ;) Geese at a nearby lake were drifting towards me too :p

Then you and I are 'chalk and cheese' cause unless I'm holding their dinner and not my camera, birds take one lok at me and head 'them tha hills!' http://www.mtbdirt.com.au/home/smf/Smileys/classic/groan.gif
