lazy duck snoozing one autumn afternoon in Christ Church grounds in Oxford.
Great capture - I've never seen a duck stood on one leg resting against a tree trunk for a nap - it looks like its on its way home from the pub. Its a good composition but I would have moved the camera a little to the right to give a bit less tree trunk and a bit more room beyond its tail. Would try to sharpen it a bit in PS, but still a nice image.
Yes, I agree with Sue's suggestions.
Saying that, this is hilarious and I wish I could give you a click for it! Well spotted.

It's a nice comical shot - maybe it thinks it's a dog?
But technically and compositionally it's let down a bit IMO. I'd agree with more room behind its tail, and I'd also lose some of the tree trunk from the left.
Then I'd increase the brightness and contrast selectively but not on the duck's plumage (by slelcting the area outside the duck, or using layers, applying the change then erasing over the duck - quite a few ways to do it) (don't be disheartened, a high contrast image like this(dark tree, white duck) is hard to expose for properly.
Finall, I think the duck itself, but especially its ey, needs to be much sharper
Hope that helps
thank you very much for the comments and suggestions.to be honest,i dont know anything about PS although i got one..think i need to start stydying it then.Cheers
