Wow.

I love this shot! The simplicity, the contrast, the composition.

Oh, Greetings from the Critique Club! Sorry, the beauty of your shot distracted me from what I was here for. To critique your shot. This isn't going to be easy. The overall shot is fantastic, beautiful and well done. The contrast is perfect. About the only thing that would make this shot a 10 for me (would have been a 9 if I had time to vote) is a bit more clarity on the birds, they seem just a bit blurred or noisy, not sure which.

Otherwise, WELL DONE!!!

Cracking shot! I would like to see more low left, but I like the composition in general. Good tonal range. 10.

WOW! what a picture. The composition is perfect with room for the ducks to swim and the high contrast is great! I love how the water blends together into nothingness and pure white! And you can still see the wake of the ducks! I hope you score high!

Edit: after finishing voting on all the other entries, yours is a favorite! a perfect 10

Love the shot. I cannot decide for myself it a tighter crop would have looked better. The still water does add to the shot. Great Job!!!! bumping to a 9!!!

This is simple and very effective. I love the reflection of the goose's neck and head. The movement on the right side creats a leading line of sorts. Upon second review, I'm upping my score.

good idea and almost perfect ... just don't like how the water is on to much motion behind the birds.

Oh yeah, although it isn't the high contrast part of the picture, I love the gradient on the water. 9

reminiscent of the 1st place entry in 'light on white'
good composition and excellent tonal range, but the necks of the birds are lacking in sharpness.
