Canada Geese, Death Valley National Park
very interesting shot, I like the comp and the textures and the geese stand out well against the grey hills.
Excellent work, Abraxas. And Roger is right, those geese really do pop against that background. Nice shot.
I've been watching this post for a while and am only commenting to offer potential counter-point... I'm NOT trying to poo-poo the shot... that said...
It might be just me, but I was like "oo... neat idea, but I barely see the geese." It initially looked to me like a shot of the gray textured mountains that needed something in composition or post-processing to bring the texture out more, but then I saw the "winged dots" on the left and was like "oh... are those geese? Oh, they're the focus point..."
Maybe more of a crop to bring them out more? I'm not sure. I totally agree that it's neat, it was just lost a bit on me, personally because the geese were hard to see.
Thanks Roger and Rick.
I'm pretty much TFO to read that many words in a row. Thanks for your opinion.
Beautiful abraxas. The geese pop out beautifully.
If I remember correctly, you know your geese.
