Hi All,

Not my usual place to post as not had any opportunities to photograph wildlife, but saw some ducks outside the pub where I took a client for lunch last week so took a couple of shots.

OK so they are not up to the standard of most of the guys here, but what do you think?

Not bad at all.* I very much like the Mallard Drake portrait with the hen just out of the DOF in the background.* All are very crisp and well exposed. Especially, if you had just come from a pub. * **[img]/forums/images/emoticons/icon_lol.gif[/img] ** *Nice work.* See, you should post here more often.* *Steve

Very cool Buzzsaw. Like the way the feathers are messed up in the first one.

Mark, those are beautiful images.* What camera do you use and what settings do you use to post them here.* I use save for the web but nothing is quite the same as on my monitor.Caryl

I like the way you handled the green of the male Mallards head. Did you lower the saturation?

As you can ntell from Buzz's images, that irridenscent green tends to blow out the sensor...:?:

Dave -I have not done anything with the saturation on this, it is straight off the camera. All I have done is apply some USM. Sun was coming from almost right in front of the duck so that probably helped. I will keep the green in mind in future as this was the first time I had taken ducks.
