    Continued from my Ducks/Geese thread. I took 734 shots on Sunday in an attempt to capture some high speed movement out of the birds at a local pond. Got a few comments about the pure number of shots taken, so here's why!

    I was shooting in continuous mode all day (D5000, 4/fps), and basically just going after anything that I heard splash. That meant a lot of snaps, very few keepers. Here are some of my favorites moments (quality not withstanding):

    Your first one is the best one i think, I would work on croping, composing, and making images lighter, coz most of them are a little too dark.

    I too love to photograph goose and ducks.

    #1 is the best out of them, hands down. The composition isn't so favorable but oh well.
    None of the compos are excellent like the one drinking water, work more along that.
    The lighting's not so great in these either.

    *I do love how sparkly the water looks, but otherwise the lighting needs major work.

    I had to sit where I could, my 200m lens wouldn't get all the way across the pond so the sun was at a better angle.

    I would have liked to get some shots of the geese spreading their wings without anybody else in the frame, but they were staying too clumped up.

    And I don't know why, but they wouldn't do what I told them :p
