About the Image(s)

1/1000/ f11/ ISO 800
Canon 1DXMKII/ Canon 800 5.6

I cropped out many of the other geese that were landing, cloned out the rest, increased exposure and sharpened the image.

Your post processing makes this such an effective image. Removing the cluttered background, sharpening the image and bringing out the color in its beak and feet really enhanced it. Nicely done!   Posted: 01/09/2020 17:36:20

Bruce, capturing images of flying birds coming towards you is a very challenging task, since you have to take into consideration Depth of field, which is very shallow in a long lens (800 mm @ f/11). But you were able to get a very sharp image of the front of the bird's body and legs, not so much of the tip of the wings, probably due to motions (speed only 1/1000 sec). The colors are beautiful, and your PP is very good. Normally the white geese in Bosque fly in the thousands together.   Posted: 01/13/2020 09:33:37

Bruce, this is an excellent image especially due to the difficulty in the depth of field. You must have spent alot of time cloning! My only other suggestion would be to darken the sky to add contrast to the goose. Well done.   Posted: 01/20/2020 17:00:21
