[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The centre of Christchurch, New Zealand, is a giant parkland. In the centre of this park in a pond approx. 2 acres in size. It is a popular place for ducks and photographers alike. I play tennis just off the left of this photo and I see photographers here every evening. So I figured I had better take a stab at it as well.
For those of you who know my aversion to sunset shots, try to think of this as a duck shot, rather than a sunset shot. I was much more after the silloettes than the sun.

Hi Keith.
The simplicity of this makes your image, the technical not as good as it could be with the total blow out in the white reflection, would have been nice to have seen a bit of detail in the water like more of the front reflection of your image. Ducks look great though silhouetted and nice touch on the water ring around the forground duck.
