Ah mallards! This is different from the normal duck shot because the ripples are so strong. I like it *click*

Excellent, Brian. Is the ripple a PS effect?

Thanks everyone for taking a look, and for the comments and clicks, appreciated as always.

Ian - No PS work (apart from sharpening, resizing etc.) - just as seen and captured.

Thanks for the viewing Chris, appreciated. I have another shot I may post, more of a fun one than anything else of two of out feathered friends.

I too have difficulty keeping up with all the postings not helped by a weeks holiday and then catching flu which resulted in the computer not being turned on for quite some time.

Lol. This is great Brian, the feather detail is spot on and the ripples and crop make it superb.

Brian thanks for your comments to much abstarct. Yes you are right in colour it is even more powerful. I will post a colour version soon. Like this shot it also has an abstract feel. Well spotted & the final picture is pin sharp.
