[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Found another gosling who was drying off in the sun. Nothing green and distracting in this one but had to do a tight crop because there were plenty of other distractions surrounding her. Her mother was standing behind her and I tried to clone out the leg but it was intermingled with her fuzz and I just couldn't do it. Did the usual adjustments in separate layers, merged, reduced and sharpenedHope she brightens your day. Have a fantastic weekend. Plenty of your shots to look forward to. Again, please forgive that I do so many at once and run out of smilies.

Hi, Lori. Lovely closeup of this Golden gosling. The the colors and the fine texture of the feathers is very striking. The close crop did bring out the details in the sharp image. Cheers.

Hi Lori,

This is a very bright image...so alive with this gosling drying off in the sun!
Excellent close-up and rendering of light and colors.
About the tiny white line surrounding your image, I expect this is the result of sharpening. You must select the image with the rectangular marquee tool a bit inside of the image for doing that.
Very nice photo!
