[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was the pic I wanted to post instead of the one yesterday, I had picked up the wrong file.
What do I prefer in this one: first the composition with the goose on the right side, second the fact that we can see its eye; third, a better view of its environment with nice reflection of the weed, and a good reflection of its neck and head.
I could have croped a little at the bottom to remove the grass along the edge of the pic but then the reflection of the had would be too near the border.
Only PP is light contrast and brighten the eye that is only a small white spot on this dark head.
Are you of the same opinion ? any suggestions ?

Nice capture Nina , I would agree with Mike the eye is now too bright and distracts. the only other thought would be to flip horizontally so it reads left to right which is surrposed to be easier for the eye to follow. Other wise things like the reflection and surrounding lighting works for me. TFS.

Good shot,Nina!Reflection you cought is very interesting.
I think a little crop and more brightness would be better.I sent ws,please check

Great post, very nice water reflections.
Well done.

Yes, the overall image is well done.
I can't grasp why something is not right in the image, overdone maybe on the USM.? The eye is too white for the goose, look in the water at the reflection, looks good there. Maybe less contrast and Brightness on the eye.

A very well composed scenery with the goose. I like it.

Oops, I ran out of loonies, I'll give you a couple tomorrow. :) :)

Très belle image et belle composition. Juste un légé manque de netteté au visage. Félicitations et bonne journée.
