Jim

This is rich in golden colors.

Reminds me more of a beautiful painting more than a photo.

Very nice in detail and colors.

Jim: Thanks for you comment on my Canada Goose family shot. I went to your gallery and took a look. I really love this one. My kind of shot...wildlife, fog or mist...in the early morning light. Super. As others have said...like a painting. Perhaps you should have a print made on canvas?

Can't figure out why it only got second. Maybe because there is the 2 ducks and it is more artistic to have odd numbers? Anyway, I would have picked it as a first place picture...it is one of my favourites I've ever seen on betterphoto.

Thanks Toni and Sara!:) Sara, you maybe right about the number of ducks... Who knows how the judges feel about even vs. odd numbers. I know odd numbers are preferred.
