Territorial Dispute by David Heemsbergen

May 2022 - Territorial Dispute

About the Image(s)

This is not a great image from a color standpoint and Canada geese are far too common here. I chose this image for the story the action tells. Taken in April, it is a time to establish territory. As I hope the image illustrates there are frequent disputes in this backwater slough.

1/2500, f5.6, ISO 400, -.67 EV, 500 mm pf, hand held. Taken around 3 pm, the light is too harsh. Had to balance not blowing out the highlights with preserving darker detail. Better if taken later in the day, but have to take the shot when the opportunity presents itself.

The action tells the story. Great detail. The Goose on the far right - you can see his tongue! Also very clear are the water drops being thrown in every direction! Nice shot!   Posted: 05/02/2022 14:37:58

I like the story told by this capture. If you are able to add more of the reflections in the foreground they add to chaos of the scene IMO   Posted: 05/03/2022 08:53:26

As you say the lighting is not helping, especially as the main two protagonists are in shadow but that does not take away from the drama you captured in the moment!   Posted: 05/18/2022 03:38:19
