    Hi Tono. I say, you are really good at this! About the only thing I might try is to crop about 20% off the top, not becaues it is an issue but rather to see if the duck would look any better if it were a little higher in the image space.

    Neat Tono. I like it, but the most important question is do 'you like it'?

    On the cropped version I like the duck looks becomes more relevant, but I like the bright tones on the top of the image...

    Your suggestion was very good, as usual, but I think I prefer the "extended version".

    In fact the duck was a little higher in the original image, but I cropped out some of the water with leaves debris on the surface.

    Considering other viewpoints expands your options, but in the end, knowing which option your prefer and why helps make you a better indvidual. Nice image, Tono. Thank you for posting!

    I think I would also try cropping the right side a little. To me, at the moment, the reflection is 'overwhelming' the duck.

    Along those lines, Tono, but I think I would return to your original then crop so the duck remained 'higher' in the overall scene; with a 2 x 1 ratio
