Default checking her reflection...

i very rarely post on the critique section but have had some luck lately with good weather conditions, which favour my fz100. i took this duck shot yesterday and was wondering what you guys might think of it. if its not your cup of tea then simply refrain from commenting as i would appreciate constructive critique only please. i am not perfect, far from it. i only picked a camera up for the first time in november 2011 so i dont presume to know everything.

many thanks
john

I read some suggestions from an editor of a well-known outdoor magazine a while back. One point she kept stressing was that an animal should seem unaware of the photographer. You've captured that here, the duck looks relaxed and natural. The only suggestion I can offer is to leave a bit more room around the bird, it seems to be crowding the left side of the frame.

Thanks tom I'll certainly bare that in mind next time. I think i zoomed out when i became aware she was there. Only i didn't zoom out enough and once framed i didn't want to pass off the shot chance. Thanks for the advice.

Im also grateful Simon has a liking for ducks and i caught him at a good time lol. Cheers Simon
