Hi Mario, your capture of the large splash of water with the green head of the left duck straining forward are what do it for me. You have good detail where it counts. You even have a decent reflection of the ducks head within all of this turbulence. So what was the outcome of this spat?

Thanks, John

Mario, nothing wrong with this action shot! Fantastic and totally exceptional as far as educting viewers abt the behavious of ducks! Much better than any posed and placid floating decoy! Congrats! Jay

Well done! Nothing to worry about here. You did a good job!


Nothing wrong with this photo... great action shot, water splash in focus just enhances the sense of motion in the ducks. Love the frantic look of the duck in background.. poor thing. And again you've also, despite all the turbulance, captured a reflection of the action in the water. Thumbs up in my book. TFS

Hello Mario,
This is the nature of dominance, and this capture displays it with excellence. The colors are outstanding, the water splashing displays the action. This is an excellent job and great oppurtunity captured.
