For Christmas I got a Sigma 55-200 DC lens for my EOS 300D.

Yesterday I thought I would try out my new lens at out local wildfowl sanctuary and got the following shots of mute swans.

Nice series. Question, how did you get the background so dark? Was it
the lighting at the time or was it tweeked intentionally?

It was quite a dark day when I took the photos and I metered off the swans. Because of the big difference in contrast between the swans and the water, it underexposed the back ground nicely.

The only post processing was a slight tweak of the levels and applying unsharp mask.
