Geese in flight

I've been trying to take photos of geese in flight at a slower shutter speed to capture the energy of the movement and still keep some definition. I finally got one that is close to what my vision is. Its a work in process. I will keep at it. Any of you BIF masters can chime in on your techniques.
very cool fav

Even better on a black background. Great action, but I fell like something is missing, but I could even suggest what. Don't give up, you get your shot.

Nicely done. Even better when viewed on black.

I think you have the shutter speed right.

I think this is superb , would work very well as a canvas on the wall , don't be too hard on yourself!! This is one of the best images I've seen on this site so far, fav

I'd say you got the feeling of motion. Looks amazing on black Fav

Beautiful on black. B and wh is a good choice. I like the diagonal line. For me, I’d up the shutter speed just a tad so they are a bit more in focus while still giving sense of motion

@jgpittenger Thanks, Jane. I get lots of opportunities for Canada geese, so I will up the shutter speed a notch on my next try. Unfortunately with these kinds of shots, you have to set yourself up in advance. My husband and Maizey, the bird friendly labrador were walking towards them. My husband says, “are you ready” and I wasn’t quite readty, but I stayed with the settings that I thought might work. LIke I say, its a work in process and its what makes photography such an amazing hobby/avocation.

This works well. I cant do BIF at all. Usually by the time I have the camera geared up and ready they are well and truly gone. Lovely motion capture.
