Default Canadian Geese

Took my S400 out for a walk the other day and got a few pics of the huge herd of geese in front of the music school. I think I should do some cropping out of the top (seems overexposed). Tell me what you think.

(sorry for the huge pic)

Nice shot, but it is impossible to see it all as it is so big. Even with my DSL internet connection, it took a while to download the entire image. Can you re-upload it at a smaller size?

The Image:
The Image was hard to view(toooo huge 8) ), it looks good, maybe a bit over exposed.

The Subject matter:
I'm probably going to upset people here, sorry, but we are covered whith these nuisance birds here. They are seriously overpopulated it is impossible to go to a beach or park without wading through their mess and getting mugged by them if you have any food.
Lately they have even been comming in to sit on houses roofs and decks. And with the warming climate a lot of them stay throuhout the winter.

If it was legal(it is not) I'd shoot them but not with a camera.

Those geese don't have a nationality.. they're actually Canada Geese ;>). You should down load IrfanView. It's a "Freeware Graphic Viewer". It's just what you want to crop and resize your pictures. It works GREAT! Read the Help after you down load it, it will make things a lot easier.

Oh wow, that's much nicer, thanks for the software pointer. Now to go fiddle around with it (I got the whole weekend, heeheehee).

Peter--And I thought it was bad down here south of you in New York State. A lot of the geese have stopped migrating, and we have them year round. Not only are they dirty, but some years back, it was discovered they can carry flu viruses in their...um...intestines.
