I tried to fix this up as much as possible. I know it's over exposed, but it was one of those rare opportunities you just don't want to miss. The reason they are all looking the same way is because someone is walking a dog along the bank. It's a huge dog and they were watching its every move.
Amanda: Nice shot -
I wonder how many of the little guys really listen to mom & pop
I pulled it into CS3 and checked curves and clipping. There was nothing to indicate overexposure. Bright morning or afternoon sun will always blow out small areas - these digital cameras just don't have the dynamic range of film (The new Fuji claims to).
Wow - how many goslings are there? You are right - this is one of those rare shots! Well caught. It has to be 10 - how often do you get 21 (I think!) all looking the same way! Crop the top down a little further to concentrate on the action. Viv
