It's sunset and these geese are in a hurry to get somewhere before dark. It's also Autumn and the air is crisp and clean. The woods are quiet as the bird in the back calls to the bird in the front. "Are We There Yet"? We all know how that goes. It always makes the trip seem longer.
Background image of sunbeams on a dark woods taken at Union Creek, Oregon. The geese were added as a composite layer. A layer of texture was added to enhance the forground red and green foliage. The final image was processed in Nik Photo Efex Pro, Topaz Restyle and Photoshops Oil Paint filter.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
