Geese landing

By Saastad
I try out a mono of these Geese landing in the water. The version is in color for those of you that like that better. Hope you like this action photo. Photo editing in Nik Collection on both.
A very big thank to those of you that voted, awarded and wrote a fine feedback on my last photo of the Goldfinch. Always very much appreciated.

Have a good week everyone,
Arne Smile

Beautifully timed image Arne and a lovely composition. The lead has an ethereal quality and the colour shows more contextual detail. I like both and may well return to the lead shot when I start having a go at lino cutting. (Never tried it before so will have to simplify it down to the essential lines. I'll let you know how I get on. I may be some time ... 🥴 ... 🤣 ... ) 🏆

A super action photograph of the geese landing. They remind of an aeroplane with its landing gear down coming in to land, along with its wing flaps up to reduce speed!!
I like both, with perhaps a slight leaning to the mono version.

I like both Arne, very well timed shot. I do have a preference for the artier look of the B&W which as you have presented it has a lot of space around the geese. It would look good against a grey background (black too strong I think) or with a thin dark image border
