A great photo of the duck. very good colours it is a shame more of his wings were not in focus. But otherwise very well done.

Hi Mark,
To be honest I'm a bit puzzled about the tight cropping to the left.
That said I do like the blurred and colourful wing....as well as the colored water in the background.

Nice shot of the Mandarin, vibrant colours and I love the blur on the wings. Good sharpness. (sorry I have run out of points)
