I little more than a year ago I came across this goose at one of the ponds at Magnuson Park in Seattle. It was late afternoon during the golden hour. The pond water was murky and the shoreline grasses not particularly attractive so I decided to creep closer to try and fill the frame as much as possible. This is the uncropped result. Very little processing was done other than darkening using the low-key filter in Color EFEX Pro then darkening a few remaining spots in Viveza, and then sharpening.

Thank you for visiting and for all of the comments over the past few weeks.
