Super work, Khai! And you can't beat that water-level perspective. I'm really liking the black bg in #11.

Best Wishes,
Steve

Lovingly crafted ducks. I love ducks too, so I think I can tell.
They are all done well, just that the last one stands out because of the light on it and the background.

A couple of thoughts:

*I think that the Hoodlums are a bit underexposed.
*On shot No. 5 I think the water reflection is nicer than the land background.
If you used a bit higher shooting perspective, you might have captured more of that water reflection.

Vice variety! The last really combines great elements for drama and pose. Enjoyed scrolling through this set.

Were you using some fill flash on any of these? If so, do you mind sharing your settings/equipment?

Thanks so much for your nice words Dave. No flash was used. The low light on the last image was natural. The lake that I shot these images is quite shady with spotty lighting. Metering on the subjects was quite tricky most of the time, as these ducks don't stay at one place, they constantly move around. Try to look for isolation of the subject was another challenge. But I guess patience paid off. I was pretty much laid flat on my tummy in the wet muddy ground with lots of duck poops. My face is pretty much touch the ground, I still could smell the foul ordor ... yuck!

Thanks,
Khai

Khai, you start and end your set with super images and everything in between is at least very nice.
