[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Wet Duck” is the name of this photograph and it was taken on a walk around Quidi Vidi Lake. This wild duck was on the bank drying off in the warm sun. Using a telephoto lens, I took several photos. She is facing the sun as you can tell by the shadows. The beads of water are rolling off her face.
This photo was cropped, level adjusted, sharpened and saved for the web.

Hi Jim,verry good carried of ths duck,good shot.TFS


Nice portrait from an interesting POV, though it looks like the DOF is a little shallow with the end of the bill being just OOF.. but not enough to detract from the overall image. Superb detail, those water droplets really stand out. Good lighting, very nice colors.

TFS, Mish
