nice catch, if I had one critique it would be I wish the tip of the wing was in the shot, but thats only a small nitpick, the colors are great, congrats on 19th place.

Returning for comment and bump. Great job on the shutterspeed and focus. Portrays just the right amount of motion. The only thing I'd like to see is some room at the top but it doesn't take away from this wonderful capture.

Wonderful capture. I think the blur on the background is a bit extreme. It almost looks as if the duck was pasted onto the background. A little feathering on the selection when you do the blur sometimes helps to prevent the artificial look.

Very nice flight capture. You captured sharp focus on the eye and yet still have motion in the wings. Very nice.

Nice detail; I can even see drops of water coming off her feet. Good sense of motion in the wing. Would like to have had a bit of background above the wing for balance but I'm guessing the duck wasn't cooperative.
