Looking peaceful and relaxed. Cinnamons are so pretty.

Hi Smac

Great image of a beautiful duck. May I suggest desaturatiing it just a bit. The intense colors are knocking out the details...

Thanks Dave,
I'll give that a try. I appreciate the tip.


I reduced the saturation by -10. Is this any better? Or do I need more?

Yep, these are beautiful waterfowl. I only got a few chances to photograph them last spring and summer; hopefully, that record will be broken this time around. Great job catching a placid moment in the life of these birds, and that reflection adds a pretty touch. This is one bird where the name is approprite; don't you just love them red-eyes too.

I only played around with this thumbnail, and now I'm only looking at a thumbnail...:-)

It looks fine, and for that matter, the original was fine.

If you have a program that allows real time preview, you can reduce the saturation to the point where the most detail is visible, WITHOUT losing that magnifiscent color. You're working on the real image, inevitably some detail is lost in the post - so only you can judge.

Great shot - wonderful bird.
