And now for something a bit different Grin

Taken at Shobrooke Park about a month ago. Me and my boyfriend went to the park a couple of times (without cameras) and saw the canada geese really close up - they were eating the grass around the bench we were sat on. So we go back with cameras and vóila! No canada geese!

Made do with ducks and ducklings, coots and baby coots (at a distance) and a Greeb (at a distance) Wink

I was trying to capture this duck, who was washing, flapping his wings. But whenever the silly thing flapped I always seemed to be zoomed in too far! V1 is my favourite, despite having the end of the wing out of shot.

V1 and V2 I've played with the water to make it look a bit more 'healthy', V4 is the colour it was originally. I was lucky with V3 - I haven't had to do any alterations. Smile

I like V1 and the way you have critiqued it yourself. The water ripples seem to echo the shape of the outstretched wing. You have detail where it needs to be, and good water droplets too.
