You must really be talented to skip a goose across the water or is it goose a goose across the water. I can do it with a #4, flat river rock. Great post Opie. Love the action and the colors.

Fantastic shot, Paul! I love the water splash that you captured and unless he's injured, I think he'll have no trouble lifting off. Looks like he could lose a few ounces though. lol

Nicely done. Love the clarity on the water drops and the control on the color.

We don’t make art to show someone what something looks like. All this requires is eyes (or a lens). Art is supposed to have meaning, emotion, power, or magic. Alan & Mario "FourThirds"

The goose is probably thinking, "I have to lay off all that bread." lol Very nice shot and I love the way the water looks in this shot.

Great capture Paul, his body is sharp, the splashes are sharp and the blur on the wing tips gives the sense of motion and energy AND you got him with wings outstretched! Perfecto.
