This amused me, they were a bit too far away to get clarity, but it was the fun aspect that I liked.

Hi Ruby,

As you say, this one's more about fun than technical excellence (which I think a lot of photography ought to be!)
I've uploaded a mod in which I've aded some contrast and colour, just using "auto tone" and sharpened it slightly.
Both done using CS5.
Hope it's OK!

Bren.

What fun, and you've managed to capture them all with their tongues out. Considering there was probably no time to compose this or get closer, you've done well. Bren's mod is good.

A disagreeable set of Canada Geese. Good fun image - ideally it needs to be a bit sharper though, and it looks like shake, even at 1/1000. Probably hand held?

Technical excellence - depends, I think, on the purpose for which the image is intended. This is OK, it's not meant to be a natural history record image of Canada Geese, thus the fun element comes in.

Many reportage shots are not sharp due to the situation. I have a friend who has just left the military - he was a photographer in there. He has some superb stuff, but all the best is on exercise - he says when it's flying for real, you don't worry about technique.

Natural history record and other record must be technically A1. Many portraits and scenic shots do look better when the technique is good.

However, you pays your money...

If anyone is happy with what they are doing, who cares what anyone else says!
