Hello Murray
Ahhh, you're getting artistic now..!
Successfully so if I may add, this is a wonderful image as your ducks swim around in this dreamy setting...
A good dynamic composition, and the birds are skilfully captured with superb details and fine natural colours!

Hello Murray,
Lovely capture of these beautiful ducks both nicely in focus. Great sharpness and fine colours and I like their reflections. The reflections of branches in the water make a beautiful surrounding too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Geoff,

Lovely shot - very simple and effective, the reflections of the trees work really well against the bright coloured plumage - they look so contented!
