Very similar to my other shot. No sun so I had to increase the ISO. Shutter speed is slightly high - should have pushed the F stop.

I don't like the background with ISO 200+. Too noisy. Not nice and smooth like ISO 100

However I'm very pleased with the details. If you look around the eyes and the refletion of the eyes - there are a lot of details there.

Hi Staale. This is a very good shot indeed. great detail and warm colours. very good eye contact with good lighting. very well done .TFS.

Hello Staale -

Wow, well done! I really like the details in the feathers and the teeth. Your composition with the shallow DOF is spot on. So, the baby geese are out in the UK here in Colorado they still have not hatched and my wife and I are thinking they are really late this year. I don't notice the noise so much in your image but if you are really concerned take at look at NeatImage. They have a free demo that works on JPG's but the fill package works directly within PhotoShop and on 16 bit images. Bravo, well done!

Thank you for sharing.

Hi Staale.
I like your sweet shot as previous similar one. It is really nice portrait work. BG is wonderful at its colourfulness and blurriness. Only it seems to me f/2.8 is too large. By the way. If you would flip-rotate this image, your last three pictures would be looked together perfectly. My best regards and TFS.
