    Any suggestions on how I should crop this? Shot taken with 300 f4 + 1.4TC handheld.

    Charles,

    I don't see how you could crop it much without losing one of the nice features, and that is the neat reflection of the tree that runs all the way to the bottom of the image. If your not worried about that, I'd just do about a 50% landscape crop, with the goose at about the left 35 - 40% of the frame.

    Nice shot. Very serene.

  5. nice shot.................just to be different would do landscape shot as Frank said, but leave full width of pic in like it was a panoramic shot!

    Thanks for the comments. I was thinking along the same lines as Jeff and Keith. Probably make it a 12x18 though. I am still kicking myself for not having at least a monopod with me. :x The light was great for a little while.

    You mean a 18 x 12 :wink:
    LOL!!!!!!!!!!

    Well on the brightside, what a nice problem to have!! :p
