Very nice looking shot, I like that you captured this guy right on the landing as it is a very interesting pose. However, there is a great deal of noise in the image. Do you have any kind of noise reduction software that might be able to help clear this up?

Looks like she's trying to fight someone off instead of trying to fly, those pesky male ducks never know when to quit! Anyways, it's not that there's much noise here (ISO 400 on the K100D I would hope not) it's that your exposure on the poor little girl didn't work too well because there's too bright sunlight shining on her neck, overexposing it, and there's too much underexposure in the rest of the photo that you brought up in post processing, I would assume. Looks like there's a bit of fringing around her too. These are all things that you can easily fix if you give it another go in post processing though, thankfully.
