Hi Pamela..This is a great capture and your work on this is well done..I like both versions but if I had to choose I think I like the 1st one the best..To me the other one has more clarity and deeper colors. That's only my opinion and I for one am not an expert. This image caught my eye and your effects worked well!!!! #932647

Thank you, Jane, Dan, Janet, and Janet!!!! I appreciate all your feedback!

Jane, thank you for your comments. I liked the original too, but thought that the background was a little distracting from the Canada Geese in the foreground. Maybe I'll try a different combination of blurring and lightening to try to preserve the colors while bringing the Canada geese out of the background.
