    Beautiful,may be cloudy but the duck isn't. Bright and sharp love the composition.

    The head on aspect could'nt be any more perfect. the bird is looking straight down the barrel. Colours and detail lovely. I might have tried a crop with the bird exactly centered but that is a personal thing. Lovely image.

    Nice head on shot here. Looks good for that ISO (not possible on my d850 by the way). Nice details as well. I would lower the yellows in the shot a bit. Not sure if you selected a cloudy white balance or not but I think there is a slight yellow cast that would easily be removed by lowering the yellows maybe 10-20 points.

    I like the direct pose, details and I could see this cropped as a square. These ducks are so cool looking. Nice image Will.
