This duck decided to pose for me so I took a portrait of him. It was good timing as the sun was setting and the light just happened to be falling on the duck's head.

PP notes: levels, curves, sharpen, NI.

Hi Mike,
Excellent portrait. Love the tight crop/composition, great light and details, perfect DOF giving a lovely sharp outline around the head and beak. A great shot.
