About the Image(s)

This is another image of the Mandarin Duck that was on our Lake Michigan Shore this past March. I took quite a few pictures of this little duck. Sony R4, 415mm, ISO 220,
SS 1250, F63. I increased the Shadow slider in Lightroom. In Photoshop, I removed a duck on the left of the image with Generative AI, increased the canvas on the right side,
and did a levels adjustment. Your comments are always appreciated.

Great image of the duck with lots of colors and detail. With focus on the duck the background was out of focus with is good.   Posted: 11/13/2023 15:24:54

What a little beauty this duck is.
Your edits were well chosen.
Gorgeous colours and feather detail, which you have captured well.   Posted: 11/15/2023 13:41:49

Well, I love this image. So crisp and uncluttered. Lovely colors and exposure. Great textures. The only change I might make is to crop off some of the sky; I don't think it needs as much as you have there. But other than that, it's wonderful !   Posted: 11/16/2023 03:53:54
