Came across this scene this morning - not enough life in the colour I suspect ?

Hi Steve,

I prefer this to the one with the grass in the foreground. I like the composition; there's a nice diagonal from top left to bottom right and the young geese (what do you call young geese?? - I'm sure there's a name for them!) are nicely off centre.

Highlights aren't bad on this one, though as you suggested, the colour's a bit washed out...

I don't think it's outstanding, but I like it.

My 2 cents!

Best wishes,

-Ben

Ditto to Ben's comments. And young geese are called "goslings."

I think a tighter crop could improve this one.

Steve, Lovely short. Let me share with you just techniques.

When you have a subejct against a light background, for instance, a water body, the brightness of the water fools the camera meter into underexposing the subejct. It means that your subject can come out dark. The solution is to increase the exposure by 1.5 to 2 f.stops. Sometimes brack this so that one of them will come out correctly exposed. Just sharing with you.

Kind regards. Jaki.
