    Tim:

    A beautiful duck, that you did justice to. Soft light, complimentary bg, excellent feather detail. Yes, the body is angled just a bit away, but the head is parallel to the sensor, works nicely for me.

    Congrats

    Beautiful bird and action pose! Great detail and eye contact. Exposure looks great, but the entire frame seems a bit dark to me; the colors don't really pop as they should in bright sunlight. You have plenty of headroom to add some light
    if you chose to do so.

    Lovely Pintail image... I agree maybe a tad dark. Thank you for sharing, Tim.

    Love the dorsal view and that flaired tail. Killer two toned background. Nice and sharp.

    I liked the first one better....But, this is really good, those details you captured are perfect. Yes, to a little brighter. Well done

    Thanks all for comments will look at using my luminescence masks to brighten the midtones.

    I this this is lovely but I prefer your first post.
    IQ, sharpness are excellent.
    I find it a bit dark and would increase exposure or brightness slightly,
    Gail
