Looking at you in the snow

By Overread  
f5.6, ISO400, 1/160sec
Taken during easter when we had some snow for a few days - went out to get some shots of the birds in the snow before it melted and it started to snow lightly as I was shooting - so I got some nice snowing on the duck shots Smile

and comments/crits welcome - thanks

I like the focus on the duck's face, and the image is sharp, with the water ripples adding that extra something. The snow on its back is well captured, too. I've never seen that before. Smile

Perhaps a slight rotation is needed here, but that's my only suggestion. Well done!

Great image, love the sharpness and the snow falling is a nice touch as well as the reflection. As stated above kind of looks like he is swimming 'uphill'. Keep up the great work...

Lovely shot, good focus on the bird, pleasing ripples and reflection
and the snow perhaps makes it.
Well done.

strange - never noticed the uphill lean to this shot before (that's what happens when you look at something for too long!)
Thanks for the compliments all Smile

This is a great shot - so clear and the focus on the eye really adds to the picture. The ripples and the snow really make this shot stand out. Lovely

Nice and sharp, lovely catchlight in the eye.

I think he's saying 'Here's lookin' at you, kid!' Beautiful capture, I love the raindrops, it makes it even better. :o) HDave
