[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken near Czarny Staw Gasienicowy (Black Gasienicowy Lake - 1624m). It was taken during the trek through Orla Perc in Tatra mountains.
I remember, that weather was poor. I started from Kuznice went through Czarny Staw Gasienicowy, Zawrat Pass (2158m), Maly Kozi Wierch (2228m), Zmarzla Pass (2126m), near Zamarla Turnia, Kozia Pass (2137m) and again lake and Kuznice.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
An interesting image from this part of Black Gasienicowy Lake. What really captured my eye was the clarity of the water in which this cute little duck is feeding. There doesn't really appear to be any amount of plant growth in this particular spot of the stream.
Excellent detail and beautiful natural coloration. Love the framing and wonderful DOF achieved.

Hello Maciek

The POV you took from above it show us the duck's
beautiful plumage and its patterns, also the great
details of the rock, over and under the water, TFS


Hello Maciej,
What lucky you are to catch such a beauty, from close distance. Amazing details, perfect WB and exceptional focus. This bird has a wonderful plumage. The details of the plumage are outstanding.
Have a nice weekend!


Well focused image with good presentation. Thought lighting was a bit dark so did a WS. Hope it is a useful technique.

Hello Maciej
this is a nice view of the duck. Excellent clarity and the clear water is so special here.
The view is so calm and natural.
Well presented shot.


Hi Maciej,

The duck is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the duck whioch is looking for food. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.


A bird picture from you is a surprise deviation from your forte of landscapes, Maciej, but a welcome one.
Nice close range image with sharp details on the duck.
Thanks and regards.
