Hey everyone,

Just wanted to share a pick i took in the summer, this shot won me a camera bag which was definitely unexpected.

wow, great shot. Definitly worth the camera bag award.

Did you happen to know there is an Animal photos thread?

Thanx for the compliment as well.

pay no attention to lefty and the animal thread :)

one of the missions of this forum is to create a venue for photo reviews, and as i understand it, you are allowed to post a new thread like this. and i love the photo. you captured the action well, despite the change in lighting (the shadow line is halfway through that group of geese).

dope shot!

I would have liked a bit more space around the birds and it's just a shame the DOF just misses the front and back birds. Good capture though.

THanx for the kind words,

I use a Canon Digital Rebel XT, with a 70-200mm f4 lens. If i could remember the setting they were 1/250 shutter priority, fstop 4 (which explains the slight blur of the goose in the forground...shoulda stopped down more) at 200mm. I believe it was early evening as the sun was going down. I used Photoshop's channel mixer to emphasize the colours a little more, but not much.
