Hello,

Many thanks for comments and votes on my great tit and water rail. I do have more of the water rail but for now I want to upload shots of different birds.

Todays is a Gadwall duck. They arent colourful but have really detailed patterns.

I like this shot because of the water on its back and head and dripping from beak.

Hope you like it to, thanks for looking

Well caught with lovely droplets. The image is a bit flat and needs a slight adjustment in PS.

Go to levels and move the RH fader to the edge of the graph. Do the same to the LH fader but move it to the right, just past the start of the graph. See if you like the difference. Also crop the OOF part of the water and a tad off the RH side of the picture to give a stronger composition. Hope this helps.
