Gaggle of geese

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Desert Rat, Nov 24, 2005.

  1. While out at Sepulveda area I found a opportunity that at or near sunset there are three waves of Canadian Geese that fly over from the golf course to points unknown.
    I have had two opportunities to try and capture them on different days.

    I know I need to work on my PP skills and waiting for Ron's E-book...

    Comments and critiques welcome...

    These two are shot with a 70-200VR and a TC attached :biggrin:

    Hi Eric -

    I think the whole bunch is very good. The first works because both the geese and the sky are warm in the late PM sunlight. The second doesn't work as well for me because the geese have the warm light but the sky doesn't. This sets up an interesting contrast and it's just a personal opinion that I prefer the look of #1 vs #2. I love #3 and #4. I wish folks would make more use of silhuottes in lighting situations like this. Take a look at a series I took here.
