Cropped, curves adjustment, sharpening.

This one was taken on the lake at work. The geese there are always splashing themselves with water, which can make for an interesting photo if you catch it right. I like the way the sun is reflected off the water droplets, and the shape the goose has assumed at the moment of the shot.

Shame about the magenta fringing on the goose's beak. If I knew I what I was doing I would avoided it, but I don't!
