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. #9410365

Sherran asked what I was going 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. #9410721

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. #9410793

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. #9410862

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. #9411136
