Taken at about 7am on a very misty morning. A flock of ducks came in while I was shooting at the far end of the pond and took off again about 10 minutes later, but these two decided to hang out awhile longer and explore the pond. I wonder if they might return in the spring to nest here?

Used an ND filter for definition in the mist -

A fairly large crop, levels, neatimage, size for web, sharpen.

EDIT post Ribbon:
Oh My! I thought I might get a top ten, but not a ribbon!
Heh, I just ran through the house in my PJ's Whooooping.

Thank you everybody! I went from under five as an average vote a month ago, to a ribbon. This site has been amazing for learning.
Thank you all, especially those who have held my hand and were willing to answer questions and giveth from the fountains of experience wisdom!

Yay! Whoot!

Excellent shot. Having the Mallards dark and the rest in fog, couldn't be much better.

Beautiful mystical shot, perhaps a few dirt spots.

One of the better pictures in this challenge. Too bad about the vignetting in the upper right... it's not bad in the LR, but it's distracting up top. Otherwise I have no criticisms and think this very good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2005 11:19:01 PM
8 - Very nice. Criticism; just sharper on the ducks if possible 'somehow', more definition on them, including colors. Nice overall 'feel'.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/24/2005 09:58:37 PM
Ya done good on this one! Visually and emotionally pleasing. The drake adds just enough color.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2005 11:02:58 PM
Beautiful! Wonderful focus, composition, and color. Only critisism would be the vinetting in the right side corners. 9

I NEVER thought I'd see a duck photo I liked - this is excellent though - 8 for now
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/23/2005 06:35:12 PM
Very subtle and very beautiful. Looks like there's a little vignetting on the corners, very minor though. Good luck in the voting, this is one of my top picks!
