Raish,
I found this to be an interesting shot. I've never seen such a large congregation of ducks in one spot! It almost has the feeling of an abstract. The motion in the beaks works well.

Such a fun photograph-I look at the duck faces and imagine what they're saying to each other. Love the colors and chaos.

Quck Quack Quack!

Great shot, really active. The motion blur adds to the photo. I think perhaps a bit under-rated. To top it off something really different in the frame would have provided contrast and a focal point.

Good job and a great mass of color. I would just like to see one of them in sharp focus.

Also would have worked well for Fill the Frame. Glad to see this was a Team Suck member - I thought it was indeed a pretty interesting take on the challenge. Also pleasing to see that at least the commenters enjoyed the motion blur, too. I like the single red foot in the upper right.

Terrific capture! I like the busy-ness of this photo. A sea of green, brown and white. The repeating patterns really make this special. I think it is just too abstract for some. Really, who has ever seen a duck scene captured in such a way. Great stuff.

I know this was a hard shot, but most of the bills are out of focus. There is also no central focus to this photo.

I like the "action" blur of the ducks all moving. Congested picture with no central point of attention, but works for me that way.

The motion of all the ducks really conveys the pandemonium. Nicely done!

kind of blury but that seems to be due to motion. I think it adds to the feeling of chaos.

This is such an unusual photograph that I decided to return to it to vote rather than voting on first viewing. Capturing the throng of mallards in this way is something that would never have ocurred to me, but it really does work; there is such a sense of movement, almost frenzy. It might have been worth cloning out (assuming it would be legal in adv ed rules)the two pieces of grain on the back of the central duck.

If only this was without as much of the motion it'd be a real gem.

Great action shot!

i ask myself, where there are so many ducks? it could be still better if the ducks in the foreground on the right side would be sharper in the focus. Otherwise a nice shot!

Oh I LOVE this! What a great concept for a wildlife photo. Your title compliments the photo beautifully. Great job.

This would have been a fantastic shot if not for the blur. If you were close enough a flash might have helped here.

Like the movement in this.

This makes me dizzy!

this might work even better as an abstract if it were more blurred thru a longer exposure. hope you took one like that to see
