Followed these baby geese crossing a city park road. Used Topaz Detail and sharp filter to get this effect.
Used my 200mm, f.11, 1/160th ASA 200.

Great photo Rita... Your work in Topaz really brings a nice feel to the image. The tone of the photo has a richness to it.

Sherran asked what I was going to...is there another set of parents cropped out on the other side? Wow, no wonder they look so proud! It's a wonderful catch and I enjoy your dd technique.

To answer Sherran and Laura's question: Yes, there were more adult geese in front of the babies, I zoomed in to capture the little guys.

Excellent composition Rita. Your upper left placement of the adult geese is nicely balanced by the goselings on the right. The diagonal of water in the background creates an extra dynamic for an outstanding image.

Well you made me wonder also on the parentage. This is what you babies day out. Quite a few proud parents here. Great find. Not every day you see this many babies all at once.
