    Default Domestic duck

    Taken a few days ago whilst photographing Wood ducks and Jacanas. I think this is a hybrid duck... can't id it in any of my guides...but pretty common here.

    D500/500PF, 1/2000th sec, f5.6, iso640, manual mode HH. Thanks for looking and commenting as always. Cheers.

    Artie would call this a soup duck :)

    looks pretty good, if mine I'd tone down the highlights a tad.

    Thanks Arash...I did consider whether the contrast was a bit much too.

    Great water texture and reflection.
    Repost looks good.
    I would clone out the spots in the water in front of the duck. He is a "hard looking" dude!

    Paul, this fella looks pretty haggard :-)

    The super great reflection and slight wake gives it a boost for sure. I think pointing away from the light source can have slightly ill effects and in this case I think heading into the light would help the cause.

    The RP dealt with highs nicely and it's certainly a better of the two!

    Yes, this is a hybrid with some amount of domestic genes in it. Lighting is nice, and the patterned water really adds interest. Highlights look much better in the repost.
