Hi Tracy,
This has the makings of a really nice image. I like the ducks pose and the green foliage around the rocks sets it off nicely. Well done for that. Composition wise I think I would have left some more space to the left to give the feel that the duck is looking out across the water. IMHO the duck as it is is too central. In addtition the shot is a little overexposed. You may have exposed for the dark areas which means that the lighter areas of the pic are overexposed. When taking a shot like this where there is a strong contrast between light and dark, try to expose for an area with an average brightness and then recompose the shot. Apart from that it is nicely focused and detailed. I have made a mod which compensates for the overexposure and also cloned in some additional water to the left of the shot to show you what i mean about the composition.
Hope you like the mod.
