I think it looks like the sharpest point is in front of the goose, in the reflection.
You may be right about the focus being toward the front.
At any rate, using either the center point or an alternate point for AF gives you more control. However, you can still find your focus moving to an object with more contrast. You really have to stay glued to your viewfinder to try to pick up on those focus shifts.
"Show Auto Focus Points" in ZoomBrowser is disabled, which is also troubling. I wasn't shooting in RAW, but the JPEG is straight from the camera. The AF point EXIF data should be there.
I've never used ZoomBrowser. I seem to remember this type of problem being resolved somewhere in this forum -- maybe search for "Show Auto Focus Points" and see if you can find a reference.
I agree with everyone that I should have been using the center point and/or AI Servo if I was expecting acation; but I was shooting landscape, and it happend so fast I just turned and started pulling the trigger.
Heh! This happens to me all the time! I frequently carry two bodies, one set up for wide shots and one for telephoto shots, but even then a quick change from one shooting mode to another can be...interesting!
