Nice shot Kisty,
I like the wide frame composition, that shows the concentric water ripples, with the subject slightly off-center. Great color and detail, nice preening pose..A little fill flash would make it even better...
Well done and TFS!

Hi Kristy,
very nice image with lovely details. POV, pose and colors are wonderful.
Well done.

The concentric rings give a nice sense of motion and bring the viewer's focus in to the center where the duck is preening. Well done.

Hi Kristies,
I did have the chance to see this nice duck in your gallery! Well done, great details and nice mouvement on the water. Good lightning too. TFS,
