The bird looks a bit out of focus. Nice colors.

Pretty bird. Wish the head had sharper focus and better lighting for more detail. The yellowish bits at the right edge of the photo are distracting.

I really like the blue water behind the duck. The detail in the wings is very good.

Maybe a closer shot of him would be stronger?

Your file size is only 51k when you could have used up to 200k. This indicates a lot of JPEG compression, which is surely taking a lot of detail out of your photo. Check the JPEG compression settings in your image editor and always try to save as close to the limit for a challenge as you can get it without going over.

focus is very soft or too much camera blur.

I like the nice soft focus. There is a really nice glow on the feathers.

He really does look like he's showing off for you! I like the floating feathers. As for technicals, he lacks a bit of sharpness.
