Default Ducks and turtles

I took these pics a few weeks ago at the park. The baby wood ducks were diving for food in the pond, and the turtle was just sunbathing. (Or he was trying to lure a guy with a camera close enough for a bite)

That picture of the ducks is absolutely adorable. It made me smile I also really like the composition of the shot.
The one of the turtle is very clear but I guess it's easier to get a shot of a slow moving turtle than a frolicking duck.
Very nice!

Thanks jazcan. I thought it was kinda funny since I had just seen the movie 'Bruce Almighty'. The duck on the right had just come back to the surface and is shaking the water from its feathers.

photo_mage, I thought the turtle was about to crawl out of my monitor.

Default Thanks Janet

He (or she) was very patient with me. Just sat still while I took several pictures. Then when I was done, it got up and walked into the pond.

Sorry JanetKP, I meant to say thank you somewhere in my previous post. It just got lost somewhere between my head and the keyboard! : )

Great shot of the Turtle - I particularly like the eye and the overall crispness of the head.

One question though, have you tried changing the exposure a bit (say in Photoshop) to reduce the brightness back of the eye / on the side on the neck ?

Default Exposure

Yes I did, I just haven't had the chance yet. Thanks. I originally just took it as an example for a friend about different points of view.
