Canadian geese? Love the reflections and the mist in the background. Good job capturing an almost meditative moment.

I thought you'd go with this one mark - beautifull image! Will do very well, perhaps another ribbon!!! Definatelly deserves it.

9 exposure tones composition focus dof...
all excellent!
I think it would work better with the last bird cloned out. Obviously you can't do that in a challenge, but for your portfolio you could. Just a thought. Great capture!

These silhoettes look wonderful against the rising mist.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice duotone look, very hard to capture this and get it sharp, I have 3 swans shot from japan so i know how hard it is to nail it. good luck -8-

Geese, colour and framing all work beautifully. (Not sure about the upper background which seems to be needlessly enhanced, because this seems fairly classic and should stand on its own).

Awesome

beautiful...what can I say? the mist is great and the birds are perfectly focused and the exposure is spot on 9

This is heartbreakingly lovely and perfectly framed. Also the duotone really works here. Fine capture. I won't mark you down on the title, but personifying these gorgeous birds takes away from their pristine, natural beauty. 9

The light is perfect, love being able to get a bit of detail on the bords, and the still water and soft background really set the mood. I don't normally get worked up over nature shots, but this is just a beautiful image.
