Paul, please don't get upset with me, this is a great image but I feel it needs a couple things to be a super image. First of all the reflection with the head cut off bothers me, second the head and eyes are slightly out of focus due to selective focus behind the head and lastly, I cropped a little off the left side so the goose is looking into the image. This was a beautiful find! The color of the pond and Lilly pads are just beautiful and position of the goose is perfect.   Posted: 08/02/2022 18:59:14

This is what happens when you get in a hurry. I've been working on getting photos ready for our big competition at the end of the month and suddenly realized it was August 1st and I hadn't prepared anything for the group. I looked through directories which were thumbnails and picked this one. After posting I remembered I had rejected this on because of the reflection being cut off. So the criticism is correct. I attached the one I should have picked, shot at the same time.   Posted: 08/05/2022 13:57:56

Paul, I agree with Tom but I took an added step and went to image - adjustments- brightness and toned down the background a bit so that the bird stands out a bit more.   Posted: 08/05/2022 08:55:58

Paul, I agree with the comments, your shot is beautiful. I love the detail you captured in the goose and the lily pads near it.   Posted: 08/05/2022 12:15:46
