It looks over sharpened.

I think you might have gone overboard with the sharpening, there is a halo around the head & neck of your goose. Other than that a quality pic...

This image suffers from what appears to be maximum oversharpening. There are fatal flaws in the halos around the geese, creating an effect that they were painted onto the background. This is unfortunate as the composition is well laid out and the image has an interest factor. I would not place a keyword of decision on this image, as it does not tell me a story of decision due to the stance of the main subject. It does not look spooked or prepared to move. I can only offer a 3, primarliy based on flaws that can be redeemed in the composition and post processing.. the image has potential, it was simply presented in a less flattering way than it could have been.

Good use of DOF. I can see what appears to be sharpening artifacts at the neck. This shot does not represent a decision as well as some of the others in the challenge. Overall, a decent shot.

looks oversharpened, nice subject.

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision. The fringe around the goose head looks odd to me, something went a bit astray in post. Nice capture though.

Nice use of dof. Decision depends on title a wee bit but is definitely there.

Looks a little heavy on the USM.

Good detail on feathers, but the neck and head look off.

Not really all that keen on the post processing, more specifically the sharpening and the halo that appears around the head and neck but other than that, not bad at all.

heavily over sharpened - bad haloing.

And very hard to see how the photo meets the challenge.

Perhaps oversharpened/USM'ed a bit? There seems to be a bit of a halo around the head.

got some gnarly halo on the duck there, too much sharpening maybe.

I can see halos. Looks like a little too much usm.
