Very interesting, Bynx. The colours ae very 'muted' (that's the best word I can think to describe it).

I know wha tyou mean when you wrote "not much to look at" - but in a way, the understated composition / subject, and very subtle colours work together.

The birds in the sky in that formation and position top it off nicely.

Cheers for sharing. As always...

i rather like this. the barren composition and subtle tones work with the coming of winter. the geese flying in formation is really what makes this shot work i think. it balances the tree in the scene.

Hey Bynx,
You like messing around and taking things out and fixing stuff, how about putting those geese in a true V formation? Your abilities to fix things is truly amazing, If I had not seen the first post I would never have known those bushes were taken out by looking at the second...

I could put them in a V formation or any other letter of the alphabet you want, but I kinda like it since their sloppy formation matched the day -- pretty sloppy. As for cloning, well its really easy. Just one rule -- dont clone too much from one area.

I like the second one with the trees cropped out better. Muted colors are very nice, so fitting for the scene and don't change the geese - that makes the picture look so real.

I really like this shot, and the second best. It gives me a good, relaxed feeling.
Great composition and great colours.

Best regards/Daniel
