[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
hello, when first i wanted to post this photo, the title
was to be « military salute », but before posting
i just decide to go and see definitions on « military salute »

and on this link in french http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salut_militaire
it is written that they do the « military salute » with the right hand
to show that there is not a firearm in the hand

in this photo is the left foot of the duck,
so i just decide to add on my title
(left handed) military salute

and on a other point of view i was stubborn (je m'entêté)
in my last photos to do manual focus and was having difficulty
it is been 2 weeks now i decide to go with autofocus
and i am very happy with the results, i will no more
turn on munual focus in the future photos i will stay autofocus

Eclaircir l'image comme le jour. Le sujet me fait me sentir très bon. J'aime imagine ceci beaucoup.


This is cute Asbed. I suppose you could have flipped the image in Photoshop and no one but you would have known the difference!! : ) I don't think I've ever seen a duck in that position. I like the color and soft focus of the background water.

Evelynn : )

What a funny photo... and a perfect title to compliment it. Good composition with lovely POV. Colors and detail are good as well. Very nice DOF. The ground under the duck is a little overexposed, I run into the same sort of problem often... will be interested to see if anyone has any suggestions to offer about avoiding/correcting that.

All in all it is a really nice image and I quite like it.

TFS, Mish
