Very cute! The composition is great, the exposure is really good too- but I would try to focus on the eye of the duckling. It is a tad out of focus, and distracts from a otherwise great image.August 29, 2018 at 11:22 am #33177August 29, 2018 at 8:40 pm #33188Lydia BennettModerator
@rmadaris, I love this picture – that duckling is soo cute! If possible, I think I’d try to edit out the stem & head of the flower that goes up behind its beak, it’s slightly distracting.August 29, 2018 at 10:22 pm #33191Caitlin ComptonParticipant
Too cute, @rmadaris! If the duckling was tack sharp this image would be amazing! Mind you I know how hard it is to get ducklings to stand still – years ago I tried to take a picture of a duckling in some purple flowers. I managed eventually! 😉
In post processing you could remove the bit of mud on its beak. Also, because the orange flowers are so bright and ever so slightly distracting, you could try doing a bit of a vignette to make the flowers darker and your focus going straight to the duckling. But I haven’t tried it, so it might be a horrid idea. . . 🙂
Great pic!August 30, 2018 at 7:38 am #33194Ernie PrattParticipant
Nice shot. Just to add a thought to the other posts, maybe a little cropping on the right side. The orange flowers are a bit distracting.
getting sharp pictures of animals is hard. Good job.August 30, 2018 at 8:00 am #33196blessings capturedParticipant
If you use a narrower aperture it probably would have been easier to get the whole duck in focus. But that is a cute picture! I’ll have to remember that “pose” when we get chicks.August 31, 2018 at 9:47 am #33215August 31, 2018 at 10:06 am #33227
