It's just ducky
Posted By: TYOsborn, 09-01-2008, 12:24 PM

I hope this comes out as sharp here as it does on my monitor.



Comments and suggestions always welcome.

Nice... though it is difficult to judge (whether it is sharp) because the forum does not allow a larger file. Are those white ducks? Difficult to take when the SUN is so bright - sometime a cloudy day is your friend. Here is one I took the other day - not a white though. - btw, this is taken with the Tamron SP90mm f2.8

Thanks... I love the reflection. Yes, they are white ducks. I did have trouble with the "whiteness" almost being blinding in some other shots I took.

Yes, the reflection in your picture provides more details than the actual body of the duck - again, I like the reflections on your picture too.

Great capture, looks like they are having a race. The twin reflection of twin ducks is very cool.

Love this shot! Thanks.

Look at the compression wake those two are building right in front of them. Reminds me of sailing.

Those two are:

A) Big ducks
B) On a mission
C) All of the above...

I agree nice shots, the ducks look are so deep into the water, they look like they are either swimming fast or encountering waves.

NIce shot, I like the reflection too! Did you try to enhance the colours at all?

Thanks! I was pleased with the way it turned out. Still haven't learned to play nice with photo editing software, but I will see what I can come up with. I would like to make the water a bit more blue (though the true color is what shows up).

Haha! You're exactly right. My family was feeding them so they were definitely on a mission.
