I noticed where I was shooting there was what appeared to be a young Male wood duck. I tried and tried to get a good shot of him but he kept darting in and out of the light. This was the best I got.
gee, I like it-
it does look like a swirly bg thingy under the beak-
Nope, That's jus the water Tom.
i'm amazed how close the reds of the beak and eye match. did you do some swirly bg effect, especially under the bill?
First not a young WD adult male non-breeding:-) Super detail and the BG is lovely, yes a bit cramped.
i quite like the BG and how his feathers follow the neckline.
Too tight -- I think.
and I fully expect you to say this is full frame.. it's times like these that a prime hinders our ability to frame properly.
Considering the circumstaces you got a good shot. Lovely colors.
Awesome galleries, glad I took the time tonight to check them out! Loved the pictures w/scriptures...
This is a beautiful gallery. You make lovely photos.
