Fellow forum members are not thrilled with mundane shots.
We are spoilt with great photos. And this is one of it. What lens did you use?

The duck shot is fine, color is good as is the sharpness. The only problem is that you need to capture the duck as it turns its head toward you if you are photographing from that angle, that would improve the shot, I would also lose the frame in favor of a thinner one.

haha,

So two are of interest to you and two are not...?

I'll take that any-day. And it certainly helps. There is four differing types of photography here, so some will appeal to certain leanings or course. We have already heard from someone who loves one you do not. Out of all the first is the most published however.

See as I said, critique is a matter of opinion also. The best photographs will have a 90 percent hit rate, but not everyone will love it. Every opinion will help the photographer decide at what level to appreciate his efforts and in turn that is a learning aid.

Thanks

perhaps I put that too harsh, just that Ive seen soooo many dragon flys of late and the other shot seems as if the little bird is lost out there in the middle of the pond. I do like the landscape a lot though.

The publications are nothing to write home about, it was shot by myself and then offered to the zoo/reserve along with others, who then included it in their advertising material and fliers. It was also used in another small article. The point being that while it was boring to you (which is fair enough- completely) I just wanted to make the point that its a subjective point of view.

And mine also. All points being valid.
