Hi Reina,
Very cute portrait:)Well caught and composed.Details,POV,framing and expression on face are perfect.
Thanks for posting.

Hello Reina,
This is such a cute shot of the goose, i completely agree with you that this one is so pretty.Lovely details and colour.

I would opt for a slightly different exposure.
Tried a workshop; hope you wont mind.
TFS & Cheers

As if it was posing just for you...
Lovely and so cute! The eye-contact with your camera makes this shot special.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Reina,
Dit is echt een schatje, zo lief.
Jammer dat er toch ook iets van een trieste blik te bespeuren valt.. hij/zij wilde zeker niet op de foto?
Leuk detail is het donsveertje op het puntje van de snavel.

Hi Reina

It's been quite a while since we've seen a posting from you and this is a cute little gosling to break the draught with. Hope to see more of you again although you must have a pretty hectic schedule I presume.

Looks like you disturbed this one's "siesta" judging by that look it gave you. Sort of like: "Go away photographer, can't you see I'm chilling out?" I like the closeness of the crop and the almost in-your-face approach of the portrait. Lovely details and good colours with an OOF and complimentary BG, but maybe the exposure level could have dropped a notch or so.

Well done and TFS.
