Constructive, honest criticism is welcome.

A little more space in front of the duck would help, as it looks like it is heading out of the frame now. Also, you may want to try selective burning a little to detract from the water, it is just a little bright for my taste.

Nice shot but needs a little more water in front of the duck.

Maybe shoot wider and crop later using software.

Currently the photo leads the observers eye to the back of the duck and out of the picture.

Also, try to get a few different angles on the duck.

Great shots take a lot of work!

I really like the water. I'm not a duck person, I'm a texture and water person.

What is this selective burning you are talking about? I only have Adobe Elements 1.0 and Corel Photo Paint 9 which are both several years old by now.

I really like the water, my eyes go fisrt to the water over and left the duck, after that, I noticed the duck.

IMO if you want to capture the attention at the duck, place it with more water in front of it, giving it some space to swim inside the frame.
