I don't think it's DONALD as his feather look to neat for the TRUMP but then again I am referring to either Daffy or Donald Duck but who know really as it's a MALE MALLARD DUCK captured at Bayfront Park in Hamilton and after my MUTE SWANS this duck came close to store so I decided to capture him.

The techniques and post processing are same as the MUTE SWAN series.

You are a touch over exposed and not terribly sharp. The shutter speed is too slow for hand holding at the focal length used. You needed a touch less exposure, half a stop or so, then, if the light was low, go to 400ISO. I will regularly use up to ISO400 with the expectation of high quality. I think twice before going much higher, but sharp with a bit of grain is better than smooth but blurred.

Dark water behind the bird means that a touch of minus compensation would have avoided the problem Paul mentions.

Compositionally, it might be a good thing to have a little more space above the duck: mod coming.
