Hi Everton,

This Pintail Duck is adorable and you captured him beautifully in this close-up. I love the round face with the white cheek, red and blue beak and the lovely eye. Nice colors and details of the face and feathers. Nice reflections and composition.


hello Everton

excellent photography of the White-cheeked Pintail,
shot with a fine POV and framing, excellent sharpness
and details, a lovely eye-contact with you, only one thing Everton,
you should zoom less to include in the water reflection
all the head of the duck, TFS

Hi Everton,
Wonderful shot of this cute White-cheeked Pintail and I like that naughty look on its eye. Very neat and sharp image with lovely colours and details on its plumage. The still water enables a fine reflection too.

Very nicely done, Everton. Great subject captured with great details and color. Just lovely. My only suggestion would be a bit crisper (maybe a smaller exposure (like f8) or a little USM on the post processing.

Hello Everton,
I have never seen this specie before and I think he looks fantastic! His colors and patterns are amazing and you show him in his entire splendor! Greetings!

Hello Everton.

Excellent image, nice compositionand colors.
