thanks for all the comments, i had several nice shots of single ducks but figured that many people would submit shots like that, So i picked this one because of the color splash and action. hard shot to get with a 500 mm lens and no t-pod camera gets a bit heavy at times.

I like the sense of confusion, but I find it hard to know where to try and focus.

Very tough shot to get. Great colors and action. If it had been possible, focus on a foreground duck would have greatly increased the appeal. Nice job.7

Very chaotic picture (good) but there is no single duck in focus to concentrate on (bad).

Kinda busy, one of the ducks in focus would have made for much better picture

The different colors are fabulous...that's what keeps this shot from being typical. Nice job!

Too many oof birds.nothing to draw the eye.

Colorful but too cluttered. Birds in foreground, blurred, are just a distraction.

Interesting concept but my eye isn't drawn to a particular area and the bird that is in focus isn't fully visible.

Shot needs a focal point. Composition is too busy for my taste. My eye isn't sure where to look.
