Flogging a dead duck
Just an ordinarry duck, I love here Gerhardt,
Good composition, good colours too. Only a shame that there is some noise. I shall make a WS for you.

Interesante imagen Gerhard.
Muy buena perspectiva, hermosos colores (aunque creo un poco saturados) y coincido con Carper sobre la idea que tiene un poco de ruido.
De todas formas... bien hecho!
Interesting image Gerhard.
Very good perspective, beautiful colors (although I create a little saturated) and I agree with Carper on the idea that has a little noise.
In any case... well done!
I love the textures on the front of the duck. You must have been fighting with the sun to get this shot. There is a bit of noise, but I really like the composition. I did a workshop for you and I hope you like it. I used edgefinder to select the dark part of the head and the adjusted the selected levels to be a bit brighter.

Great photo ans good story. The close up of the duck has lots of detail, I think the workshops have done very well to clean it up. Excellent.

Beautiful diagonal position of the duck, Gerhard, with crisp details visible in the plumage. The color pattern on the beak is also quite unique. Very nice catch, and as always well annotated.
Today seems like a day when everyone gets the compositions just right. I like the way see is swimming towards you. Not very photogenic due to her colour, but we all live with the idiosyncrasy our subjects. I like the way the water mirrors her movement in what appears to be turning on a dime. Now you have me, I think this is an immature yelly-billed duck, or a mallard female, some feral birds being known in SA. You have to give the answer here.
