No, I had to bump it up on third view, great picture which looks really nice in b/w.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This picture is just awesome, the detail of the wings and I think the black and white aspect made it all the better. Although color may have been just as stunning. The beads of water on the ducks face are visible. I just love this shot. I may have to get a print of this.

How did you get him in such a perfect position? I love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/16/2005 12:17:04 PM
Nice capture and black and white really allows one to focus on the wonderful shapes and tones of those large wing feathers. Unusual composition too. 7

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 11:42:31 PM
awsome timing here. seems that most of the focus was on the wings, which isn't bad, but would have liked just a tad more focus on the face. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 10:23:05 PM
I am glad you did this in black and white. It really adds alot to the photo. You captured this moment so well that I am giving it one of my highest scores. I would not be suprised if this photo ends up in the top 10.

06/14/2005 09:00:07 PM
Just addes to my favorites...the tone on this is stunning and the composition is really neat. Love the "pose."
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 03:50:00 PM
Great B/W piece! The detail and textures are superb. I think the lighting is a little harsh in spots, but it's difficult to take many points away from this one. Really beautiful job. (9)

06/14/2005 03:09:20 PM
wow! cool catch amazing details.
I would love to see this one in colors, although the b&w is very interesting for it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 02:37:41 PM
Normally I don't like black and white here. However you shot is outstanding.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 09:38:14 AM
Very nice, sharp, good contrast. Good use of B&W.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 08:01:44 AM
Unbelievable capture. Absolutely no blur in the image. That is so hard to do, and yet you've managed to keep such details in the wings. The title is awesome. I love it. (9)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 06:31:49 AM
Lol! The title really fits this shot, he (she?) looks very concentrated on something, presumably leading the orchestra. Nice capture.

Stunningly Beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/14/2005 01:54:54 AM
Stunning. I love the gradation of black and white on his wings. I'm adding to my favorites. I'm not a member, but if I could vote it would be a 10. Perfect moment.

Very impressive capture. Title should have been. " one, two, three......"

BEAUTIFUL!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/13/2005 04:24:32 PM
AWESOME!!!!! This is my most favorite kind of duck, and I almost submitted one very similar to this myself (you can see it in my profile). Yours is much better tho: it is SO crystal clear, and the detail of the water is absolutely perfect on yours!!! The only thing for me about your picture is that with the amazing colors of this bird, I wonder why you preferred black and white. . .but nevertheless, your picture is truly amazing and I love it!!!! 9

great shot, looks a bit burned on the white feathers, good details, I think it would be better in color though.
