Hello Andy,
there are few things which strikes when I see this photo. The first one is the excess of the color Magenta, which dominate to an extend when the rest of the colors are almost lost. The contrast of the scene also seems a bit too strong. In terms of composition I personally feel that we need a bit more space in front of the bird and on top maybe as well. To do the color correction simply apply Auto Color, then add a bit of yellow and Cyan. In the presented Workshop I decreased slightly the contrast and the brightness. I also added a bit more in the frame on top and in front of the bird! The Drake Red-crested Pochard is amazing creature indeed! I hope you like the result in the workshop, Andy!

Hello Andy! This duck does have an attitude! I think the brilliance of the white feathers balances out the colours in this photo quite well. Great capture of the sheen on the breast feathers. Well done! TFS! Linda
