7 - Nice capture, especially of the skiing feet. 'If only' the tip of the other wing as well, and 'somehow' this bigger/more in the frame, especially at the bottom, make this even better in my opinion. Toning works well here.

AWESOME!!!!!!! This is a WONDERFUL capture. I have a real weakness for bird & duck pictures too!

Decent work - in fact, decent all round: tone, detail, focus. It perhaps lacks a sense of drama, that thing that would really make it stand out in this enormous crowd.

Nicely timed, like the clarity of the water too. Should score well.

good timing in capturing this shot. perhaps a faster shutter speed next time can help the blurry drops of water to the right.
