Photographer's Note

Just for fun...the showdown at the OK Langhorne, Pennsylvania. Taken a decade ago this weekend...The kids small, but he's tough, and it doesn't look like either are going to back down...the boy wants water, the goose wants land...the line is drawn, who will cross it first.

Taken with my first "real" Olympus 38-138 zoom. The quintessential power point & shoot of the decade. The grain is due to the scan and the color is due to the photographer. Figured why not, mark a decade of shooting and have some fun. This one has it all - the dynamics of the tilted horizon, the character created by the grain, the colors of sunset, the few moments of tense quiet anticipation before the fight, waiting for the first move, breath held, eyes wide...enjoy.

...and a note on the horizon: I tried straightening it during PP but that made both the boy and the goose look like they were on the moon, so I composed the photo around the boy and let the horizon, well, just be dynamic.

Thanks for any comments or critiques,
