a SNOW GOOSE by Timothy Morton, APSA

November 2019 - a SNOW GOOSE

About the Image(s)

While out with some friends I noticed this strange bird, which I think is a SNOW GOOSE and took various captures of it at Princess Point in my hometown of Hamilton.

The editing was re-sized to met the PSA requirements and fooled around with the UN-SHARP MASK once happy saved as JPEG.

I guess all the Canada geese live in Arkansas - there are a bunch of them on the island I live on and they never leave. Given that, this image has a strong initial impact on me since it reminds me of all the geese that poop in my yard. I like your field of view as the goose is sharp but the foreground and background are a blurred. I've never looked that close at a goose, but this one has some odd knees.   Posted: 11/15/2019 14:21:02

Nice detail on the feathers of the goose. I like snow geese; we don't have them around here, so I guess that makes them exotic! The fact that he is doing something adds interest to the shot.   Posted: 11/15/2019 17:44:45

Hi Tim, lovely image, the duck is sharp, great background that has no distractions, you have handled the white of the bird very well, it is good to see the bird doing something   Posted: 11/20/2019 05:26:14

Nice DoF with the blurred grass at the very front and behind. You've managed to not burn out the white feathers and captured some texture in them.
Good composition and, as Wendy said, nice to see it doing something.   Posted: 11/29/2019 09:49:14
