I took these the other evening. There were plenty of geese feeding at sunset and I saw several floating directly into the reflected sun as it set. I took some shots and wanted the opinions of others as to whether or not they worked for you.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

I'm partial to the composition of the second one. Very nice!

Thanks Bob, I think I am leaning towards that one too. Any other thoughts, critiques or comments? Please speak your mind. You can't hurt my feelings I am just looking of honest feedback.

Thanks,
Steve

Steve, it's always nice to have that sunset moment. I prefer the second over the first - the composition is better and there's no distraction (see fuzzy black blob on #1 in upper left).

How about one with the silhouettes justout of the sun's glare - either to the left or right? You would still achieve a nice silhouetteand you wouldhave an unobstructed view of the sun on the water. My two cents. Cheers Dan

Hey thanks for your input Dan. It's always welcome. That fuzzy black blob is a stupid Mud Hen (Coot) they're everywhere :lol: I thought about removing it in PS.
I like your suggestion about catching some geese just outside the sun flare. That's why I asked for opinions, you guys usually have some good ones.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Steve.

I'm also partial to #2. #1 needs a little more space on the right side, and there is the blob, although you could clone that out easily.....cheers...Don
