Sky mid-morning, as seen through a goose-shaped cutout in the metal gable at one end of the roof of a visitor information kiosk at Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. A short while later, white haze/clouds turned the sky very pale.

In retrospect, I suppose this might have scored better if a fluffy white cloud could have been part of the blue sky, but none were available then.

I gave it a 6 and almost gave it higher. I knew it was a cutout with the sky beyond - at least that's what I assumed. Didn't guess it was a cutout in metal . . . cool! I only wished it had been flipped. Then I'd have bumped it for sure :)

you fooled me. i thought you did a threshold on a real image and not just taken a picture of someone else's stencil

Underappreciated for sure. I wasn't sure how you accomplished so I am glad you shared the details. I think folks penalized you for thinking it wasn't a real photo.

I am not even sure how to vote on this, it kinda looks like clip art. How did this from a photograph become this.
1- for entering,
1- for being blue-
1 for being a recognizable animal
1- for putting it in a photo contest.
