[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This mallard is only the second ever "speed" shot i have taken,the other was a pelican. I am having great fun trying new things,i love it.

This one is a result of a training session on ps elements with Mojouk,many thanks mark for all your help and patience with me.I have been tending to ruin a good shot trying to use ps and not getting the settings just right.we adjusted levels,usm,and a little sat.

Shot at Marwell,another nice place.
as usual, comments welcome and its because of the feedback i keep trying new things.
many thanks,

Hello Graham,
Excelent picture! I like the effect of motion in the wingsof this mallard, the frontal view, centered and the intense green waters.
Very nice job! thanks for sharing

Hello Graham

excellent shot and got in action



wonderful contrast of motion in this photo and at a good angle and composition. Tell me what are those small white marks over the picture?

super shot, well done.

Hi Graham,

I really like this shot, I took a few like this but they were all complete blur. I like the detail and colours and the effect you have with the flapping wings.

Regards Hilary :)

Just perfect. TFS
