Deadcreek Wildlife Preserve; Addison,VT

thousands of snow geese rest here on their migration south. It is amazing to see them constantly taking off & landing & to hear their HONKING! These guys were startled into action. I was sitting on the ground, had great perspective! Very Hitchcockian ("The Birds")

EDIT: open, duplicate, levels, crop, selective color adj to yellow, red & green. noise reduction, shadows, USM, levels, border, resize, SFW/opt

POST: well, cool! that's not a bad finish considering the early voting was very discouraging:( For a minute there today, it seemed the geese might bump Jackson off my profile page, but his spot seems secure!)

Good capture and timing. The processing adds a nice feel to it.

Rather I would say "Ordered Take Off Hazard" than "Migration Mayhem". :) Nice picture.

Good capture. I think I would have tried cropping out the ground, thus leaving the upper two-thirds.

It is a very interesting point of view, like the composition also. The only criticism that I have is that it looks a little underexposed to me or maybe lacks some color, cannot tell for sure what is wrong to me, but that's why I'm giving you a 7, not a 10.

good image but what point of view is?

I think the composition is nice, but this picture clearly shows how this picture was overprocessed. The amount of highlight (via photoshop) has been increased by a too large amount - 6

A great action shot but the clutterred foreground seriously detracts from the overall image
