[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While hanging out with my husband and brother on the Arrowhead Golf Course in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Couldn't help but snap some shots of these ducks playing around in the pansys on the course. No tripod as I was driving the golf cart for my brother!

thanks for your visit to my gallery and your comments on my photos.

Hi Donna,
Nice couple of ducks!
Very good the grass and flowers inclination, it adds also color to the scene.
Righ exposure use and DOF.
Perhaps the ducks are too separate .
I like the careful presentation you made with the frame.
Well done and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hi Donna,
Wonderful shot. Such vivid colours and sharpness. I love the four reflections of columns and the angled alignment of the landscape. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hermosa escena, con muy bellos colores y una presentación estupenda, con el suelo en diagonal que parece introducirse en el agua.
Un saludo, JL.

Hi Donna,
The combination of the ducks and the pansys are really wonderful. It gives the photo an extra doses of sweetness. I also find the reflection in the water really interesting since it breaks the photo up into 4 different areas.

the yellow flowers look lovely between the water & the green grass,
well composed shot, very fine point of view,
tfs & regards
