i love this idea, nothing wrong to speak of,

i like all the lovely sky acting as negative space to balance the yellow duck. in truth it is a bold composition.

after the initial viewing i then start to ask what are you wishing to convey as a message with the image and perhaps on that level it needs another centre of interest, perhaps an aeroplane with contrails passing high above for the duck to gaze at or possibly a flight of geese way up in the sky passing left to right. (could be composited into the picture ) any thing that adds a little story.

as a graphic exersize i love the tones and shapes and whats more its fun and thats what photography needs

Thank you for the critique, Phil. I appreciate it.Grin It has been helpful and a definite boost to my self-esteem in photography Smile I was trying to go for a colorful children's poster kind of look, if that makes any sense.
Thank you again Smile

I agree with Phil

great graphic shot but I would clone in a fly or something that the duck is looking at. It needs to be in focus too as too much blur is not easy on the eye.

Have fun

rambler.

This is a gorgeous shot, really well thought out! I really like the colours and the diagonal line between the clouds and that gorgeous blue sky. I would be happy with the shot just as it is, but I can see what Phil and Rambler mean. Smile

Hi Madelyn....this is a super shot full of great graphic awareness....composition is spot on and exposure and colour balance on the money....you have a good eye for an image based on the shot and that is the most important starting point...if you can see or visualise the image you want to achieve in advance you have the first vital tool on your journey as a creative person...good luk
