Baby's got blue eyes

Janet Williams 10/17/2005 12:15:08 AM

Beautiful capture Mata. I have a similar shot where I changed the BG to greyscale to enhance the white and blue of the goose! These blue eyes are amazing, especially with the orange rim around the edge which acts as a natural highlighter. No money wasted on eyeliner or mascara there! Great shot and the title is superb - I will be singing that song all day now! #327863

Jill Odice 10/17/2005 12:17:12 AM

I have never seen a goose with blue eyes! This is really great Mata! #1959486

Danilo Piccioni 10/17/2005 2:20:50 PM

il profilo e anatomico e sembra messo appunto per diminuire l'attrito con il vento di quando volano....
la natura ingegnosa, guarda un p! gli ha fatto pure gli occhi azzurri per fare colpo sulle altre oche! LOL #1962335

I loved the blue eye of this goose.
So to enhance it I played with the white color.
