Hi All,

Thanks for your comments on previous upload,to do some more testing on my new camera,I went back to the place where I found the golden eye ducklings,they were still there and actually I saw another family as well,the weather conditions were not that nice cloudy with sometimes some rain,anyway I made some nice captures,this one is a medium crop of the original,but I liked it one of them raising itselves out from the water,hope you like it as well and enjoy the weekend.

Beautifull scene and very good shot. Congratulations

Hello Paul
Wonderful capture with sharp details,

Hi Paul,

A good capture, it shows that the new camera auto focus finds feathers no problem, (some camera's find feather and fur a problem to focus on automatically) Colours are consistent with a rainy day. DOF is good and the duckling at the back seems to be trying to get a better look of you.

Carry on with the new camera, and have a good weekend

Regards Bill

Hallo Paul,
Als dit het begin van je nieuwe serie foto's met je nieuwe camera is, is dat erg beloftevol. Schitterende scherpte en de hele scene komt prachtig natuurlijk over.
Goed weekend,

Hi Paul,

This is priceless! He must be the alpha Golden Eye Duckling. I love his pose and the huge water circlets around him. The others seem oblivious to his antics. Beautiful natural colors, wonderful details of the faces and feathers and a fine composition.


Hello Paul
your five ducklings are as cute as my five ducklings
this shot is wonderful, the details are stunning
great composition, colors and POV
Have a nice Sunday
