Facing the last couple of days at work now before the holiday.

It seemed like a great hill to climb for the little duck. "I think I can," puffed the little duck as it went on bravely puffing faster and faster, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can." As it neared the top of the hill it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I--think--I--can, I--think--I--can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the other side congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could, I thought I could."


Well its a bit of fun- and we are nearly there!!
Thanks for all you C&C for this little duck series.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend
Helen

Fantastic lines and contrast, and we get the little duck as well. Keep it up, cheers, Tony.

love the lines and shape and the duck gives the image character.Think I like version 1 because the little duck is just on the point where two shapes meet. I tappeals to my eye.

How lovely. Unfortunately I can't see the whole image without scrolling so I can't click through and see him moving. Superb pattern though.

This barely qualifies as photography...

... as a work of art it is absolutely outstanding!

Rarely have I seen such quality!

I like the moving duck too... v6 for me.

Well done!

I have the same problem as Chris - initially I thought I could not access the versions because I was not seeing any change on the screen. Wonderfully original now that I've sorted out what's happening.

Thanks everyone, I had no idea that it would be such a problem seeing the duck move at the same time as scrolling over the numbers. I suppose it has something to do with the size of screen, and I don't have that problem myself. However he is rather near the top of my screen, so if I do something like this again I will do it lower down in the picture. So, sorry to those of you who have looked, left a comment and still not seen him go over the hill.
Helen.

Super creation, Helen...and great fun seeing the duck move when dragging the mouse across the numbers!
This works fine for me on my laptop (that I'm on now) running Internet Explorer browser, but on my desktop running AOL browser it doesn't have much space top to bottom, so sometimes don't get all the picture.

I was beginning to feel deprived until I saw that others had the same problem. Was going to suggest your mouseovers have the moving part further down, but you've already picked up on that. This is a great abstract, Helen, with or without the moving duck.

I really love this composition - the colours and shapes are terrific, and the image is really sharp. The added humour of the duckling struggling over the hill is a wonderful touch and lifts what is a wonderful picture to another level.

It has been a struggle to decide which of your series is the best as they are all of a fantastically high standard. I have in the end gone for this series because of the axtra fun that the movement gives.

Congratulations,

James
