    I really like this.
    2 very dynamic poses and there is no overlap of birds.
    I really like the crop and placement of the birds in the frame.
    I would darken the lower bird a bit more (the mist in front of the crane makes it look like there is uneven exposure).
    I would also evict the 2 white spots at the very top of the frame (on left middle third).
    I didn't notice the goose in the frame at first and I like it. Sort of like a little present for those who really look at the image.
    Finally, you could clone out the tall grass right in front of the top crane's beak.
    Nice frame Bill!

    Beautiful Frame. Was this take at Crane Pools ?

    Very Nice feel to the image.

    I love it.

    Very atmospheric, I wish images could be posted with a sound track to enhance the mood.
    Gail has good points.

    This is a beauty Bill, love the light and the poses. Like Gail, I might darken the lower bird a bit more, but this is definitely the type of shot I'd be looking at printing and framing

    Nicely captured, Bill. I prefer the original with the lower crane running through the mist.

    Love the mood of this one. The orange water is great. Framing is right on.
