    This is a slide from last fall. I was tracking these geese on their way to a water landing when... they just starting doing barrel rolls and colliding with each other.

    Strangest thing I ever saw. It was so weird I almost didn't snap the pic. I also forgot to not move while doing so.

    Oh, but if this were a sharp photo... ;)

    Nice shot, Jim! I have to say, I'd never seen geese do that before!

    I like it. I think the blurryness adds to the chaos of the moment. Plus, how cool is it that you were not only a witness to this but managed to get some shots of it. :)

    As usual nice photograph, the blur give it a 60’s flash back filling

    Darn good shot Jim but that's when a movie camera would've been useful.

    I agree with the others. The blur adds character to your picture. It's a nice picture altogether.

    I love the picture the way it is now. If you want to try a focus restoration you can use Focus Magic 3.0

    Dew mentioned it a few days ago and I d'loaded it and tried it. Pretty cool piece of software. It's on a trial basis, 5 restorations after which it'll cost you $45.00 to get a serial number. I'm thinking about it...

    However, I would leave the picture as is! I love the movement of the birds. Great shot!

    Trish- uhhhh.... let's not stretch things here, ok? :lol:

    drlynn- me either. They actually dropped about 100 feet almost straight down, flared, and splash!

    photogoddess- it turned out okay reduced to this size, but it's pretty crappy at full size/resolution. [shrug]

    Jeff- 2 words- Brain Cramp

    Mark- Used the Contax RTS II and a Yashica 75-200 + doubler. Not the best combo, but they were out there a ways...

    wwjoeld- thank you.

    Sid- true, but since I don't have one...

    Harpper- thanks

    Mitica- I'll check it out, but I don't think even Focus Magic can save this one.


    Did anybody try to coulnt how many geese there are in this shot?
