Chased these guys around the pond for a while. Their parents didn't like that too much, but I kept my distance and shot this with my canon 75-300mm lens. Late afternoon. The lights and shadows were perfect. Cropped, slightly increased contrast and saturation, and sharpened.

good capture. the middle gooses head seems a bit out of focus from moving. would have been nice if you could have posed him with his head up...he didn't get the cool catchlight in his eye the other 2 have.-5

Completely adorable shot. I really like this. The browns are pretty and realistic, and go nicely with the grass. I like the composition and the way you decided to crop it, and the fact that the grass is a an angle in the direction that they're walking seems to give even more "momentum" to the walk. Well done!

nice bunch, love the soft focus. The background (pond?) is a little unappealing, otherwise would be perfect.
