I love this. The blacks of all of the tones really give it POP. Nice leading line and of course the beautiful background doesn't hurt either. Love it~

Very nice, looks a little too saturated, especially on the duck. But still in the top 10 for me.

The background colors is amazing also the blue eyes of the duck goes well with the lake and sky.

probably #1, but at least top 3

Something about this shot that messes with the eyes, did you tweak the photo? Some of the back ground is tilted.

Nice processing but to be honest....I really don't care for your ducky all that much.
