    This is the same Drake I posted banking before landing.

    While the dof is not quite what I'd hope and thus a tad busy, what I did love is that it shows a true Drake Mallard setting in terms of landing near a bank with reeds and the colors I often see them in near Denver.

    Chose a 16x9 here as something a little different but it seems to really showcase the wing position, at least for me.

    Well done.
    I don't mind the BG.
    Tack sharp, and love the pose.
    The iridescence is well shown.
    Very nice,
    Gail

    Well the brakes are on here. The framing and the pose are right on.
