Nice sharp picture,but the timing is off, I would have tried to get the duck into a full frameon a different angle, but that's not always an option when you shoot wildlife other than the other duckcrop the image and it's a keeper.

Well I wanted it straight from the side like this, and if I would have included the full bird, and also leaving space in front of her, the frame would have got so big I probably couldn't have kept the background so nicely out of focus.
I think the framing is a bit different and cool as it is now, but who am I to know

Thanks you guys

I actually like the framing - it's not a typical angle, and the other duck in the background makes the shot really work - at least for me.

ASBR, you got so low for this!

But what do you mean I "got so low"?

Ithink the composition is excellent. I love low angle of the shot. You've captured a real Mona Lisa smile on the duck that you can't realy get from a higher angle. She looks as though she knows something we don't and that's suported by the distant duck out of focus and invites us to look deeper into the scene. Not to mention, great color all around, in focus and out.

Thanks a lot
Maybe thats what "flippedgazelle" meant by "ASBR, you got so low for this!", that it was taken at a low angle.
Didn't think much of that since I didn't exactly have to crawl on the ice thanks to the swivel display

Beskärningen, oh sorry, the cropping is excellent (and thereby of course the composition)

Just for fun I flipped it
