    Honestly, I'm not big on ducks. My dogs and husband love to hunt them, so maybe I've just had my fill. I do like your pictures tho. It's nice that you got the feet under the water and none of it is blurred. Kudos! I do have to ask, did your camera add the nice framing, or did you do that PP?

    Hi Gretchen,
    Thank you for your kind words.

    I must admit, I normally like my duck on a plate; but these little fellows were entertaining the children in the park today, so they have done a good deed for today and were reprieved. Lol

    The border was added in PP. I was sort of trying to 'finish' the picture. Do you think it worked or not?
    Thanks for viewing.

    Yes, I like the framing. I play a lot on Photoshop adding and making frames (and lots of other things). I really like what you did. I think my preference for frames comes from an art teacher in college who insisted we matte everything. I makes even the most casual presentation look polished and complete.

    Hi john, a much lower angle will make your duck come alive! Well done on the color and exposure.

    Thanks Steve. The issues I had here was a large fence between me and the ducks and the fact I was standing on a raised area around the water; even laying down wouldn't have brought me level; but I agree that if I could have got a better angle they would probably have looked better. Well there's aways next time.
