Jeroen wat is deze MOOI!
super scherp veel details en prachtige kleuren
Ik zou zo niet weten wat er aan mankeert. 't Is geen actiefoto, maar op zich is hij prachtig. Prima scherpte en mooie op elkaar afgestemde kleuren. Een van de eendensoorten die ik nog graag eens van dichtbij wil fotograferen, maar dat is erg lastig.

Geweldige eend. Schitterend verenkleed en zo te zien van zeer veraf genomen. Mooie scherpte en kleuren.

Now I would like to know why you say it's not perfect! I wish it was mine. To me it's beautiful and as you say they are scarce and you don't often see them. Well you've even managed to get a catch light in the eye and that is fantastic my friend. Well done and tfs.

Beautiful photo Jeroen! Very good composition and nice lighting.
This is perfect to me. At 850 mm (35mm equiv.) focal length this gives us a distance of around ~ 50 feet (assuming the duck is of 1 foot size that is captured on APS-C sensor), IF the picture is full frame (without crop). A decent (1/2 - 1/6 )crop of factor '1/n' means ~ 50 X n feet. Definition of perfection is a subjective matter. I am certainly not fastidious enough to call things imperfect, which are few & far between. Cheers.

What a lovely shot of this beautiful bird. Wonderful DOF, lighting and POV, clear details, the colors and composition. I say this is a perfect shot... I love reflections and the OOF BG too. TFS.

I have never found ducks to be particularly exciting photographic subjects except when chasing in-flight captures, but this species is difficult to "bag" in my experience. They often swim into dense cover at the slightest disturbance and are also very scarce in my part of the world - so well done with this one. I think that I would have cropped a little more off the top of the frame, to focus attention on the duck and its rippled reflection, but that is personal taste.
Best wishes, Nigel.

A very nice species of duck. Amazing details and splendid colors.
Lovely composition with exceptional contrast against the water and wonderful sharp details. Spring is here and I hope to catch some wonderful photos with this gorgeous water birds.
Thanks for sharing!
