Yikes! what a great capture of these birds almost colliding! I love great duck photos! This is awesome. I sure would have picked it to have scored higher (MUCH HIGHER) than 5.2!

Nice pan shot. You've nearly pulled it off without any blur, just a little bit of motion blur in the wings. I really like the feet and tail position of the back goose. Minor bit of noise/grain, most evident in the foreground blue. Good job leaving a little breathing room in front of the geese for them to "move into". If this was tack sharp I think it would rise to the top. As is, you'll still do pretty well with it. Good luck in the challenge.

tough shot. i see where you're going, but don't think you're there, yet. i think once you're free of the dpc challenge constraints, you'll be able to go back and shoot this the way you really want to capture it, a little sharper, a little more definition on the birds, a little less motion. who knows, maybe it already has what you want, but because of size limitations, we just can't see it...

Good panning! I'd try taking the geese off center vertically.
