Hola Biplab, me gusta de esta foto la especie de pato que no conocía, una toma dificil pero bien lograda para la identificación...saludos.

Hello Biplab,
nice to see another good picture from you. try to follow rule of third (basic composition rule), as you know that every subject has it's own language and grammar. so, if you want, people will like your work and appreciate it, then you have to learn the composition and other factors about photography. please don't take it otherwise.
if you visit others picture at TN and critique it, then others will come to your gallery and put their comment.
best wishes from samiran
