I was pleased with how everything fell into place on this one.

Nice photo. Might have used a little more DOF to focus the goose, but maybe that was your
intent to bring out the reflection more.

Thanks. You hit on my only disapointment with the shot. It was shot at F4.6. Should have went with 8. Oh well, learn as you go.

Nice shot and colors. Difficult crop decision on this one in that a decision needs to be made about whether or not there should be more background behind or in front of the goose's head. The top right deadfall compels one to include the branches but then one third of the space below is negative, non-image space and much more negative space behind the goose than in front of the head where many would suggest it should be. Personally I would crop the right side a touch.

Good overall impression.

Isn't the photo completely out of focus? The goose is pretty unsharp

I didn't notice a distinct problem primarily because I think this particular subject matter and composition lends itself nicely to a touch of softness. I like it :-)
