the exposure is just right to show off the diamonds in the reflections, but since the ducks were supposed to be the focus of the image, your exposure hurts your score here. this may be one of those times when a nice image scores lower in a challenge than it might in a free study.

The ducks are much too dark and the whites are over done - a difficult shot, but a decent attempt.

It looks like the glare from the water has thrown the exposure reading out
