Very interesting item, does it lay golden eggs...? Nice color tone and focus.

You select interesting subjects. I like the tones, but am I seeing a lens fault on the duck's head or is the FOV intentional? Margo, write me at my e-mail about this one. I have some quick hints.

Beautiful capture. I would have personally focused on the duck's head.

Thanks for your comment.

Yes, interesting subject but the lack of clear focus on the head is frustrating.

@Pied Crow: I agree. It was a bit of a snapshot rather than a carefully composed image.

This is a beautiful shot! The light is perfect and the colors awesome! Well done!

Yup, I know the technical Comments above are right but I still like the ambience of this image . . the duck looks like it could tell a few stories.
