I agree with you that the ripples look attractive, and they provide an interesting setting for the bird. The green reflections behind it add context. Was it sleeping over a drain? The lighter rectangular shape shape draws my attention and I wonder if you are open to using post processing to remove it?   Posted: 07/03/2024 20:16:31

Until you mentioned it I had never noticed the drain, and it is somewhere I have visited a number of times over many years.   Posted: 07/12/2024 06:54:08

The colorful water reflections are definitely the eye-catcher. The focus of the duck is a little soft and the drain is somewhat distracting. It might help to crop in a little from the top and the left.   Posted: 07/04/2024 15:27:57

I like the way the browns and greens compliment the color of the duck. I'd consider decreasing the brightness of the white tail feathers, they are blown out on my screen.   Posted: 07/12/2024 06:46:30

The water ripples add to this image - very nicely captured. I would crop a little from the left to remove the brown stick(?) and also from the right and bottom. You might consider toning down the white area on the back of duck and, as mentioned, I would consider removing the drain as it distracts from an otherwise natural setting.   Posted: 07/12/2024 20:05:44
