Thanks to all who voted and commented. This was with a telephoto, a Tamron 200-500 at full zoom and as you see F6.3.

I love it. This is a wonderful "stock shot", and one of my top ten in the challenge.

Excellent capture, the background works extremely well also.

Honestly, I would have rated this photo higher without the goose in the background. The forground goose is dead-on sharp focust and nice color. Background is also quite a nice contrast.

Aweseome use of DOF and clarity. Is this using a telephoto 2.8f?

Well my first reaction is to laugh, as I suspect most people will. But once you get past the chuckles, this is such a fantastic. Your DOF is amazing, focus dead on; even the colours are vivid and add to the overall appeal of the image. I only wish I could take a picture like this. I usually try to leave some constructive criticism on each photo but frankly there is nothing you can improve here and this image is so far out of my league I think you need to leave me a comment to help me improve. =)
