Hi Staale.
I like your close-up so much. You managed to pictured a very nice moment. Pose of the goose, your POV and colours are excellent. You have perfect equipment. In this case you could apply ISO 400 and a bit faster shutter speed. However, your shot is very well done. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Staale,
beautiful in action shot,i like the composition.
