Canada Goose


Viewed 10 Times

I find this image interesting. While not technically good, the symmetry of the geese appeals to me. I was trying to get pictures of white birds wading (Snowy Egrets) so my settings on the camera were entirely wrong when I heard these Canada Geese coming. They flew straight toward me and eventually landed right in front of me. I raised the camera and started shooting without changing my settings. The original images were very dark (underexposed) but Photoshop helped me out. Image is virtually uncropped and other than raising exposure (almost 2 full stops) little else was done. Shot with a Canon R5, 100-500 lens (at 500 mm), SS 1/2500, f/7.1, ISO 500, EC -0.7. Shot at San Joaquin Wildlife Reserve in Irvine, CA.

I agree- at first the Can Geese pic seemed mundane but after viewing it in its enhanced view I like the symmetry and colors in it. Good eye for the interesting out of seemingly ordinary.
