    PHOTO EDITING NOT OK
    Challenging shot with the extreme contrast of the white snow and the dark goose. These guys are so much fun to watch and photograph! And, if yours are like the ones in our park they'll come right up to you...especially if they think you'll feed them some bread crumbs!

    I think the shot is fine, you have room on the right for him to look to for eternity. At first I thought that the focus was a little soft, but I tweaked the shot with CS3 with the only thing I know on it, the "smart button" and came up with this.
    [attachmentid=21916]

    It shows a little more detail in the feathers! (I did not see a not modify post thing so I hope this is ok)

    hey AKD,

    thanks. yea its ok to edit my pictures.. just hope nobody steals them. (cause they're that fantastic) lol.

    great edit by the way.. im going to try that method when i get home. i did notice the feathers wern't coming through properly, but i found fixing it difficult due to the mentioned problem by sue, contrast and such.
