This female stood by the pond for several minutes before finally deciding to take a swim. I think she just wanted her photo taken. C and C always welcome, thanks Bob

Nice try. The bottom left is over-exposed IMO. Could possibly be enhanced with PP(?).

thanks Tom, that is mainly what I was trying to show was the motion and water, I should of waited a little later for a better photo, but it was 107 f out, so I snapped and came back to the motorhome to cool down. take care. Bob

I would love to spend an hour a while at that scene exploring all the possibilities of the water- wheel and the flow. Maybe more since different lighting could produce something really dramatic. As to Mrs. Mallard, she's kinda cute but maybe she's not the focus in the scene. Nice shot with great potential!

thanks EM, I just have to be more careful watching the lighting when taking photos, I think it is easier than having to do extra pp and yes I understand. thanks Bob

That's great. Nice composition. Work on the bottom left highlights in PP as eaglem noted above and you've got a winner!
