I love it - what a lineup! I like the one naughty duck who is looking the wrong way. You captuted them beautifully with nice natural colors and good details.

Nice capture of these ducks!
I wonder why they've lined up like this :-)
Great composition and POV.
I like how each duck is in a similar pose except for that one staring straight through the lens.
Could do with a boost opf contrast but that is all.
Well done Peter,

A fine and amusing capture of a row of Black-bellied Whistling Ducks standing on a wooden rail.
Though a little soft, this image does show the features of this species of whistling duck and I thank you for that!

Oh, this is MY kind of picture. I love finding images like this... they make me smile. Interesting DOF, bringing the center ducks into focus and softening the rest. Nicely composed too.
While the rest are looking elsewhere, I like how the three closest birds seem well aware of you and the middle one of that group seems to be 'having a word' with his neighbor about you.
Well done, thanks for putting a smile on my face today... Mish

Hi Peter. This has made me smile tonight I think its the second from the right duck looking at you . The answer to joeys question is that they are all quackers. !!!

Hi Peter, this would make a great poster for "Getting your ducks in a row". The pose is fantastic, they all face the same way but for one, and he is turned your way. You could almost attach a comment to him. This is an excellent composition.

Wonderful shot of these Whistling Ducks nicely lined up on that plank. Very imressive sharpness and colours and I like the synchronity in their poses. I wonder how it would sound to the ears when they start whistling together. Excellent POV and a marvellous composition. Kudos.

Your photo is well composed, nice serie of ducks but the DOF is, in my opinion, a bit too narrow

Hello Peter an excellent shot what a find! perfect line up. 1/60sec shutter was a little slow for the focal length but reasonably sharp nevertheless. I love how one of them is looking at you congrats nice one! tfs rgds Necip.

Very interesting duck formation, Peter.
You saw and captured the moment very well.
The focus is a tad soft in my opinion.
TFS and regards.

Hi Peter I had not visited your gallery in a while and I really love that picture! The ducks in a row and most of all, on a handrail, they look like school kids waiting for a signal... The one looking straight at the camera is really funny, thank you for a funny sight of these beautiful ducks and for the very interesting notes!

This is an amusing shot, and I love the fact that you have one of the ducks looking at you. Great composition and a nice note.

What a rare and cute scene. I am amazed a lot as well as I am impressive with fine curve, created by hand-rails and birds. DOF is great. Colours are wonderful, a bit blurred BG is amazing too. Well done and TFS.

The POV is very good.

This is an amusing image Peter. I love the one looking at you while all the others look the other way. These ducks are unfamiliar to me. Thanks for sharing them.

Sem qualquer dúvida, uma das melhores que já vi por aqui.
A simetria, cores e posição dos animais são bastante interessantes.
E aquele olhando para você ? Foi uma autorização par aa foto ?
