Cool, you were pretty close to these two. Detail looks great, but couldn't you ask the bottom one not to hide his face next time??? LOL

Are these shots HDR?
Nice shots but to my eye, they look more like paintings than photographs.
Could be my monitor ??

All those duck picks were just made in 1 second.
After that second I choose these 3 pictures to show.
I did some corrections of the shadow/highlights and unsharp mask with photoshop cs5.

These pics look great on my monitor, no 'painting' effect at all that I can see. Great captures BTW - I've tried to get similar shots of birds in flight, but none came out anywhere near as nice as these.
