At the drinking hole

The pond in Reykjavík sometimes freezes over in the winter, giving the birds that live there year round a hard time. 
I spotted these geese having a drink near the Town Hall and liked the symmetry of the group:

Technical information:

Focal Length: 105.0mm (35mm equivalent: 157 mm)
Exposure Time: 0.013 s (1/80)
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO Equiv.: 100
White balance: Auto

Post-processing: GIMP. I pushed up the saturation and adjusted the contrasts and curves to bring out the colour of the birds' beaks and legs. I considered cropping it to portrait orientation, removing the extra goose and the mallard. (I may still do that).
