I think this is a classic approach, but feather detail and that gorgeous tail the duck decided to show seem to make it a very interesting shot. I have seen lots of pictures of ducks on "black" water, I had never tried one and this one turned out quite well... I really liked the outcome and hope to have a very strong photo for the challenge. I shot about 300 photos of ducks!! Thanks to my beloved wife who patiently waited.

sweet shot. would have liked it more if the tail wasn't blocking the view. Perhaps a move to your left to open up the view.

7 - Nice. Criticism; difficult I know given the color of the "point(s) of interest", but just a touch brighter. Like that water drop on the right duck, maybe even a closer crop and that/the beak as the "poi", who knows. Tail either softer or in focus maybe, not sure. Technically, while no 'expert', seems to me you have used at least three rules here, top third, right third and top right intersection, so well done. edit:typos
