[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mallard taken in St-Bruno National Park at sundown.
I took this picture right after he tried grabbing wheats on the bottom of the pond as the water was dribbling down is bill giving the impression that he was drinking water (maybe he was).

PP (ACDSee Pro):
- Slight ajustment of the levels.
- Shadow/Highlights (to balance the lighting)
- Saturation 10%
- Sharpen 20%

Hi Patrick
Very nice photo. Bravo.

Hello Patrick,
You got a clear and sharp image of this mallard.
The light at the moment was great, and let you got a very detailed subject.
The waves around adds richness to the scene.
I like a lot the color saturation of your photo, and the composition also.
Congratulations, thanks for share and happy holidays!,
