Taken by a pond at a local University. There were a bunch of baby ducks. For some reason, this pose made me think the baby duck was feeling very successful. Maybe dreaming of flying.


Thanks to everyone for all of the comments.

::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
You got the cute vote .. I can tell by the comments. This is sooooooo cute it ain't funny.

is a lovely shot but very centred ... which is a minor for this shot.

meets the challenge and does so in a cute and fuzzy way.

Technical (Colour and light):
i really like this ...it is reasonbly dark which has been picked up by some commentors, but I don't see this detracting from the natural shot.

To grow its vote?:
Take it from another angle .. front on capture the look from the eyes ... hehehe (I think you did well with a nature shot)

Great work ... fantastic capture.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via
the PM system.

Adorable! I love this one. Although I think lightening it up would help it out - check out the levels in photoshop - seems to be leaning pretty heavily to the left.

This is so cute. My eyes want it to be a little more in focus but it's a darling shot. Awwww...you can't go wring with baby animals!

I don't know if ducklings can feel pride; this one certainly looks like it can.
