Lovely image of a wild duck. We have the same here in the UK.
I like the crop you have done and that you have flipped the image. The colours are lovely and muted. I like the trail of bubbles he has left whilst swimming!
Looking close the duck doesn't seem to be very sharp which is a shame. Not an easy subject as they do not stay still for long!!   Posted: 05/04/2023 11:15:41

I like the crop and the way you flipped the image. I think perhaps the crop could be a little tighter at the bottom and the left to leave some of the bubbles in but make the duck stand out,   Posted: 05/04/2023 12:24:51

Good idea to have cropped the other duck out of the image - as it was too close to the edge. Flipping and cropping make this duck stand out. Using a faster shutter speed might have resulted in a sharper image of the duck.   Posted: 05/04/2023 15:17:32

Mr. T, I like your duck. Good choice of cropping and flipping. Bubbles a nice touch. You can brighten the eye, and it does have a catch light. You might see if you can get some detail in the body feathers as I bet with texture you can get more detail. Also, the back feather is bright white and there may not be detail there, and that happens, but you can see if you can bring down highlights in that spot. These are fun shots.   Posted: 05/04/2023 17:08:57

Great image. I really like these colorful ducks. I would consider cropping a little more on the top left, putting the duck in the upper left 1/3 of the image. You really positioned yourself well with the sun coming in over your shoulder.   Posted: 05/15/2023 18:47:59
