What is the focal range on the geese? It look farrr. If you could have open f some to drop the DOF it might have isolated them more from the background. I love the color range in this thoguht. It's a tough trade off sometimes.
The Geese were shot at f/5.6 with a 250mm (35mm equivalent: 400mm) lens. They were about 30m (100 feet) away. f/5.6 was the widest I could go at that focal length. I kinda like the houses in the background. I darkened the them a bit so that the geese would be brighter.
