I took this shot along the Delaware Canal in Lambertville. I did nothing to alter this picture other than crop it a little. Otherwise I felt the picture was nice as is. Adding effects, etc may have been overdoing this.

This si a terrific shot. It has the colour balance of the ducks environment just right.. The surrounding colours are subdued which has allowed the duck to stand out. Good clarity too. A couple of things to look out for. Use the thirds rule to get a stronger composition, it would work wonders for your score here. Secondly, your image is way too small and makes it very difficult to study. The 430x384 size really doesn't give you much chance. If you hit the 150kb barrier, you need to read up on varying the JPEG compression ratio

Really nice color captured on the duck, it really sets it apart from the rest of the pic.

4 - Good potential. Nice colors. Criticism; given the background/surrounds/context, I think a more off-centered composition may have worked better here (depending what you had to work with of course). 640, in this case width, would also have likely helped.

Cool duck pose. Might be better if you pulled back and got the duck's complete reflection.

This is a nice picture, I'm just afraid that this will be voted down because of the size, you should use the 640 pixels that we are allowed to use in challenges.

I wish you either cropped the bottom out (where the reflection of the legs is) or included more of that reflection in the photo. 5.
