|This year's batch of swallow babies out of the nest just today. There were 5 in the nest, in the sweltering heat. I noticed the mother has a gentle way of calling to them in contrast to a more noisy call when she comes in to feed at the nest. Mid morning, cropped and sharpened.|

Very difficult shot regarding huge contrast between Light and dark shadow. Not easy to find the right exposure. You should try to step down one or two steps the exposure compensation... This way your shot would be a little bit darker, but this way you can avoid burning out the feathers of this youngsters... Very good POV and DOF, interesting diagonal composition and lovely eye contact with that little one in the middle...
