A family portrait of a some ducks in the Thredbo River, Snowy Mountains, New South Wales. Unfortunately the sky was totally pure white cloud so the sky exposure is a bit yuk.

Hi Ollie!

I like this photo because you've got great exposure on the water / reflections.

Yeah, oftenone can't help but get a blown out sky in such situations.

Isn't this a very cold part of NSW? (I seem to remember it's name when I lived in Australia...)

About the ducks though, they are so small that they are lost in the photo... so I see this more of a landscape photo (the ducks almost get disguised as rocks in that river!)

Cheers

Paul

Ah Ilike images of wateron whosefloor you can observe the sun light highlighting pebbles of appealing colours such as in your photo

Maybebrightening up the dark parts while trying to regain some details in the blown areaand increasing the saturation slightly along witha touch of extra sharpening so as tocompete with the effect of the overexposed area would help

Thanks for looking guys. Paul, yes Thredbo is at the top of Australia, but getting warmer by the day. Just had their worst snow season in memory - bloody global warming!

Bahadir, I've already done all of what you suggested to the photo. Maybe I should be more aggressive with the PP? Shows how badly overexposed the sky was that day.

Cheers,
Ollie
