Minus the blurry foreground branches, and it's an amazing photo.

I think I'd zoom in on just a few of them to showcase their beautiful colors and detail. I like the idea of this. Maybe work on the focus a tad as well.

Looks to me more like 'getting one's ducks in a row'... While the picture brings a smile, I thing a greater DOF would have improved the image

This is a brillant shot and the fact the ducks are so numerous actually adds to the branches attention rather than overpower it. would be almost perfect if one of the ducks had been picked out very sharply, like the lighter one for example (second in) bathed in light.

Awesome shot.

This is a great shot, well composed..

8 - Really llike this, nice simple tones. Criticism; perhaps an even tighter crop, cutting out the first duck, not sure. Like the angle and the reflection of the water, so any different angle would likely not have captured what you have here.

Cool. Very cool.

they are awake! liar!

Would be better if you could have gotten the leaves in front out of the way. Looks like you took this picture through some other branches.

Looks good, and you have something on the branch, what a novel idea!!

Great to get all those ducks sat like that, I like the diagonal composition.Despite the comparatively shallow DOF you didn't quite manage to knock out the distracting leaves and foliage that are between you and your subject.

For some reason I have never seen ducks up on a branch like that. Interesting find!
09/07/2005 01:24:29 PM
whats that saying, something about having all your ducks in a row?
09/07/2005 01:09:06 PM
a little too much shade has decreased the vibrant colours of the ducks. also, some leaves in the foreground that you should have moved out of the way before taking the picture

I like it, imo, may have been cropped a little better, but nicely done
