[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While I was in the park visiting the sculpture garden I decided to feed the ducks. I shot many pictures while there throwing bread crumbs the entire time. As soon as my bounty ran out...they left!!!

Thanks to my friend Pranab who found out what type of geese these are I can pass the information on to you.

These are Chinese Geese and not native to North American.

Adjusted Saturation
Cloned one duck's tail

Thanks for viewing!

i like it a lot!
very good framed,Fran!
Funny one example and posten like candy :)

ihihih that's adorable Fran :-) what a group of charecters and yeah.. they're always only after one thing!

this really made me smile.. thanks for sharing it :-)

take care,

j'aime bien cette composition car l'encadrement laisse penser que l'oie rentre sur la photo.

What you only give them one crumb each? :). Lovely capture Fran. Geese can be so frustrating. Good PP work, not over saturated and a nice cloned tail :)TFS.
PS many thanks for the comment on Sunlit Detail

they relly look haughty, he? Thanx, you did good girl, like the comp, colours and detail, M, (*_*)

Fran...I am realy surprised !!!
The quality of your work is lately ' best ever'
Nice is the goosse half out the frame..Subject is very real in colors and sharpness ! Well done babe !
8-10 Hug

Hi Fran, it is absolut fun:)

I like the way they are walking with the heads up, real snobs:)

How did you cloned the tail?
I also find the fact that 3 are white and the other grey very good, breaks the simetry:)

regards, Sabina

Hi Fran,
hahaha, a lovely shot with a nice headline.
I like your idea with the one outside the frame, good work, thanks.
Greetings, have a nice weekend

Hi Fran, the title had me laughing out loud when I saw the image. What a capture. Brilliant.
Take care,

I like the intrusion into the border.
The colors and textures are nice.
Nice work.

Hi Fran,

Good title for this portrait. They really have an attitude and it shows. Creative framing, which I am still not sure I like :). It looked a tiny bit to blue on my screen. Did a workshop to check it.


Creative PP work and very nice presentation. The photo is very nice and well exposed.

fran, hehe, they've got you there.
creative framing and nice colors.

Hi Fran
Beautiful colors and composition and very fun picture.

Yep, they used you. But you got even - because you got a fun photograph out of the deal! Too cute. :)))

I wonder if it hurts the duck when you clone its tail. ;)

Take care, Fran!
Gayle :)

Snob! Very! They don't look at you! They even don't respect the nice frame you apply! A funny situation you create well!

snobs they are!
well captured and love the way you framed them.
well done!!

Like the way you prented this shot Fran, somewhat out of the frame and the colordifference between the gooses makes a nice contrast ..excellent work !!

great job and very suiting the title, funny, good job of out of the frame.

Hello Fran, this is very cute with the title :) They are well captured and sharp. I like the bird out of the frame.

Take care, Yan

I really like this - it's great fun. Very clever too with the 4th 'snob walking in!

Hi Fran,
Neat work... the ducks seem to be quite a bit of high nosed characters! The frame really complements the picture. Great Capture!

Hello Fran.

This i like very much Fran. Relating back to your last message and have replyed as well, i see you have the same effect as i, where as you have cloned, i used layers.

Very good result, well done.


Hmm, yep backs are turned a most definate snubbing I'll say. Ahh the way I see it their goose it cooked anyways. LOL
