You have focused very nicely on the Canada Goose in the middle of the picture. Its kinda small compared to all the area area the goose which is out of focus. It leaves me wondering exactly what you were thinking of when you shot the picture. Is the attention on the goose? If so you should have made it more prominent and deleted all the out of focus stuff.

That's an inspiring image taken with some considerably good tools : )

I think I get a bit of what appealed to you at the time of shooting. Referringalso to Bynx's valuable remark above, I'd emphasize the background on which the goose stands and let the leafy ground and tree trunks remain as the complimenting! foreground

I think in the first photo - the Canadian goose is too small to be the "real feature". I do like the tree framing.

The 2nd photo, I love the feather details... but composition isn't so strong imho.

My pleasure,Alan : ) If youhad converted your images into sGRB colour space at the save process of RAW conversion,I needn't have done any edit at all :-)

I think you save your images mainly for printing and that's why you save them in Adobe RGB always. Actually, the sGRB colours cannot compare that of the Adobe butsadly most internet explorers do not have the codec toshowit but only has to suffice with a paler reflection of it!!

With the introduction of your second picture ( just beautiful!)I'mmore interested inyour goose series!Wold like to seefurther but preserving the original coloursfor the web conditions please : )
