following on from your forum post Leland.

There is no need, that I am aware of, for any sort of model release for this type of image. Neither of them are identifiable, so you would be ok in my opinion.

You did the right thing though, if in doubt ask. There are no stupid questions, sometimes you get stupid answers, but on the whole, if you dont know something, its the quickest way to learn.

As for the image, if you dont mind some honesty.

I think it would have worked better, if the geese were completely in the frame, and the shot was a little lower down. I must also add, the first thing my eye went to was the car on the far bank, i did find that a distraction. And finally, the bright whites appear to have burnt out, i.e have no detail in them, and as such, they fall down a little there.

Generally speakiing, a lovely image, but room for technical improvement (which will come with time)

Hope to see more from you, keep posting. Its the only way to learn.

Glad you decided to post it. Everything Anthony says, but adding if you could have moved more to the right and caught the two without the bench obstructing the view would have been a much cleaner photo.

I was going to say that too, but decided to let someone else have a go. Smile

Thanks guys! I appreciate the criticism, and now, when I go to catch another such shot, I know what to do.

I certainly don't mind the honesty, in fact, I appreciate it. It's better than lying to me, so I don't learn anything and continue to make mistakes.

You will definitely see more of my work, and along with it, hopefully some improvement.
