Sunshine flap!

By Lillian

Just back from Arundel Wetlands..what a great day..loads of photographers as two Kingfishers

The mallard is brilliant Lillian.
With nature image do we retain as it was or straighten or remove distractions?
Don't suppose there is a definitive answer unless for a Wildlife competition?

Wel captured, even if it's 'only' a mallard.
Much better for straightening up.

What a poser Lillian, this is a fabulous image of this mallard drake flapping his wings, the colours are simply glorious and you've caught him in some wonderful warm light. I had a very enjoyable day at Slimbridge with gary_d and the light was perfect and the weather sunny all day. I managed a shot of a cetti's warbler and lots of a heron close up. He came to within a few feet of us and wasn't in the least bit bothered that around a dozen or so photographers were snapping away at him constantly!
