Hi Mike this is a good picture and it is nice to see a rare bird on TN , colors are good , try adding a bit of contrast. The picture is also bit soft

Hello Mike,
This goose is unknown to me and very beautiful. Was this taken in a bird park as it is so far outside its habitat? I think cloning out the white objects, especially in the region of the bird's head but also elsewhere, would be a positive contribution. Remarkable that you achieved such sharpness at that long focal length and slow shutter speed. Best wishes.
