Snow Goose Encore in Snapseed Drama

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 22 February 2013 in Animal & Insect.

Ok I lied.....I know, I said yesterday's was the last Goose image for a while but, here's the "deal:" I worked late today-and even though I am off tomorrow (Friday) I have to get up early for a 0700 doctor's appointment-and I did not have any other ideas for posts-and it is way too doggone cold to go around looking for a shot even if I DID have time-and so I thought, "what the hell, throw up a shot after editing it in smapseed and throwing a little drama in it"-and I liked this one because it has some perspective with the tree there-and if you look REAL close, you can see geese almost entirely up into the sky! ......Whew! That is one long, run-on sentence (he said taking a deep breath)!" So, anyway, here is my Snapseed-processed (I used the Drama tool) Snowgoose image number four...or is it five?....I will try to find something actually different for the next post :-) Happy Weekend everyone!

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
