    Swans, and other white birds, are always a nightmare to correctly expose, Sparsh.

    Unless I am able to correctly spot meter from them I prefer to use some negative exposure compensation. Evaluative metering, I find, always produces a bit of over exposure in cases like this.

    Unfortunately, this often produces very dark shadows, and you are approaching that senario here. That is a very difficult scene to correctly meter. Shooting Raw and doing a little 'clever' editing is probably the best option.

    What were your camera settings? Your depth of focus seems a little shallow.

    I would do a little bit of selective sharpening on the first photo to just give it a little bit of extra pop but not afftecting the background.
