A Canadian Goose

Here's two studies of a Canadian goose. I was happy with the first one (top one below), but felt that it could use some aerial perspective. So I did a second one where I lightened it and decreased the contrasts behind the goose and made stronger pattern/contrast in the water in the front. I'll still prefer the first one... hmm. What about you?

Hi Johanne,

Which is the first? I like the one on the top, with stronger colours in the reeds and grasses and the stronger reflections in the water ahead of the goose.

Bob, the top one is the first one (sorry that wasn't clear).
