A nice job framing the scene, and the middle goose is sharp and nicely side-lit. The large blob of unfocussed goose head that dominates the image is bothersome to me. It controls too much of the image for me, and is located in a position of dominance generally reserved for a subject, which (to me) should be the focus and in focus.

I don't generally consider myself a traditionalist, but I find the layout bothersome.

Just my opinion, of course.

A fabulous example of true bokeh
You`ve got the 20d well under control I see.

I like the photo. However your strogest bokeh is from the foreground, and the challenge was to use the background bokeh to enhance the photo. A change in positions would do the trick. In other words, focus on the duck in the foreground and blur the one in the background.
