Ohhhh myyyy I am loving that Shoveler shot Kirk, a favorite duck of mine that I have never got a chance at an IF blast off like this and man you absolutely nailed it my friend

Always nice to see Greenies and not often able to see the IF but again you are on target! By the way, IMHO I think your contrast is off on the Greenies, just going to post one for thought then will pull it, unless it was the warm light that did it??

RB Mergies are cool to see, landing shot is great, again this one seems a bit shallow on contrast?? I think you spoiled me with #1 Also, the shredding water in the landing Mergie looks strangely gray to me??

Karl



Thanks again for the good words buddy, most appreciated. Even more appreciated is the constructive feedback on the Greenie images, you were right on. I still like my RBM image as is...

Never give me a pass on nits and crits.

I always enjoy your post, Kirk. Your images all have clean bg, great sharpness and good composition. My favorite is the Merganser with the water droplet on its bill.

Nate


Many thanks for the very kind words Nate, and so glad you enjoyed the Mergie.

Thanks so much Paul... I'm assuming being a cracker is a good thing.

Nice shots! Really steady and crisp pictures. I really like the ripples in background.
