Beautiful lady in beautiful blue water:) I can see her leg under water,so it must be very clean!
Plus,your ws is perfect.Congratulations and TFS
What a grat blue water! I wolud like to go swimm with your duck! Do you think it is possible?
Well done on this capture, you could have composed the reflection in the water, it would have improved the shot greater.
Great work Julia, a beautiful duck on beautiful water. Great details, good note and very skilled cloning technique.
You have done very well.
Thanks for sharing.
She is beautiful Julia, and she's contrasting so nicely on the blue water. Good details of her feathers. And interesting notes too. Well done.
Well Julia, I like the female mallards over the males - I like the brown colours. Very nice picture and note. The duck looks great and the water is very nice too. I would have been tempted to include the reflection of the head too. Very nice detailed picture. Well done.
There are some nice patterns in the female mallard plumage and they look good when the sun catches them, very nice Julia.
Very nice picture Julia. The colors are very good and so is the exposure. The foucs on the body seems a wee bit soft. Well done & TFS!
Nice shot! Having looked at your workshop I must say you've done an excellent job with your cloning, I usually spot that sort of thing quickly, and I didn't even notice it this time - nicely done! In some ways I prefer the female, although it's a bit of a swings and roundabouts situation, I love the bold colours of the drake, but the intricate patterning on the duck is also very pleasing. I'm afraid I agree with Mike/Paul about the reflection, but it's only minor. Something I think can be enhanced though, is the sharpness. Have a look at the Workshop I've posted and see what you think! Well captured :-D
Very good sharp shot...
Another good shot Julia,
Nice details, good colours and good clarity
The sun brings out the details better in this mallard. Nice capture
Thanks for posting
Julia, another great shot coming from you. Excellent composition and sharpness. I like the bg too.
A very nice shot, sharp and clear.
I especially like the soft light.
Note is very complete too.
Nice picture and very interesting facts again.
Do you know that a hummingbird swallows until six times its weight a day?
Nothing wrong here... :) Its a very pleasing shot with lots of details. The water looks so nice. Interesting write up too. Very well done.
Lovely shot. Mallards are so easy. We have them at a pond down the road too, and i love sitting and watching them. This is a lovely lady.
