James E. Coleman level-addict 8/7/2008 7:49:00 PM

I am also very late, but I agree with your "surreal" comment. The blur and motion of everything but the heads, as Cheryl said, really gives it such a unique look and feel about it. I didn't read everyone's comments but agree also with Ken: you are the master here; all are so good!!

Know that just because we don't comment on all of them, doesn't mean we don't think they are great!

Canada Geese. To me, this picture has a surreal look to it. Canon-EOD-D60, Canon EF-300mm 4.0, L. IS lens, Exposure 1/125 sec., F4.0, ISO 800.
