I thought the reflection looked good.

I have re-posted the picture after altering the border and cropping as suggested by Ori (fragman)

Hi Peter, this is a lovey shot of the Shelduck, I have not yet seen them in the wild. Your pov shows those lovely markings and the reflection is wonderful. Good exposure in the evening light.
ps: sorry I have not been around lately

nice shot..tfs..mike

Wonderful framing with the offset and love the reflection. Crisp image showing the plumage to the full.

Hello Peter !
I like this picture very much, firstly because the pose of your duck is excellent, he looks so proud with his head high ! Secondly, I am completely fond of the reflection on the water, it is very beautiful. Excellent composition and colors. Very well done !
