    Swamp

    A couple of geese on the way out of the picture. I like putting a minor twist to old conventions. In this case the geese would always be on their way into the picture if it was to be conventional. I sat around and waited for this to happen for a long time. Actually this is couple number three. The other two was on their way in the other direction.

    I very much like the somewhat dark mood you created here --really unusual for geese photos. I enjoy viewing photos that break the conventions, and what you did here works... horizontally --there's something about the vertical placement of the geese that's not working for me... I'm not sure what to suggest to improve it, though...

    I think they are to high up in the frame.

    I love what you captured in the gnarled trees.

    Cropping the image nearly in half, just below the geese's reflections, creates a rather interesting "pano" image that becomes fairly abstract, with interesting repetitions, and the geese to break it.

    hey thanks guys.

    actually i would crop it so there was even less stuff in the top of the image if I've had more pixels to work with. My 40D does a great job, but it is only 10mp.

    and yes the moodyness actually surprised me a bit when I came home with it. The liveview really didn't do it justice. heheh
