Went to the park to feed the ducks with my niece. I spent the whole time taking pictures of the ducks. I like this picture because I like how hes facing away from me eating out of the water. I see to many bird pictures where they are facing right at you. I think this looks more natural.

Hi from the Critique Club,

You asked for your shot to have a comment from a member of the Critique Club.

Interesting shot. You are sharp, clear, colours are good, subject reaches the rule of thirds.

But as you know on DPC, if it isn't right in your face and full of drama it will not do so well. To be honest here, I think that for once (on DPC) you where really voted on technique, because lets face it , it is a duck standing there.

So I think you should be very happy with the plaement on this shot as it is technically great.

Nice close up though the halo around the head is bothersome. A little lighter on the USM should improve that.

awesome title. (nothing lame like "contemplation", "decisions","colors of nature", or "the loneliness of a waddling soul")

I like the splash in front of the duck. This adds some energy and movement to the shot.

Good detail but a little dark and too tightly cropped.

Very nice duck but DPCers seem to hate ducks.
