What a nice composition. The lightning and focuss are juste delightful! Colors are brillannt, TFS,

very nice catpure, and shot, this color is very nice blue water :-)

Clean and clear with interesting action.very nice shot.Thanks you for sharing.

Your high sense of aesthetics is manifest in each of your work, Osse.
This simple picture of a duck highlights that fact amply. It is one of the best duck pictures I have seen on this site. You have captured the moment beautifully.

Hi Ozcan,
Not simple to get such high quality picture. Everything is so coordinated and well balanced. Very well done.

Hej Osse!
Piękny portrecik! Słodkie kolorki, dobra ostrość i bardzo estetyczny kadr. Miło się ogląda. Roślinka dodaje uroku całej fotce, bardzo pasuje.
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma

what a beautiful shot, ozcan! :-)
simple, i don´t know, you still need the exact timing
on the duck´s pose and position, which you managed well.
very nice composition with the waterplant and a wonderful
blue colored water with some great movement on it.
well done & take care, thorsten.

Hi Osse, nice colors and details in this close-up.
Well done.

Hi Osse,

Maybe simple,but you composed it very nice,well done and TFS,


Beautiful, but a slight tweak to eliminate the plant leaf on the left and a slight lower position so all the shadow was in shot, would have made it my favourite pic.

Excellent, superb, splendid!!!
A truely great image, Osse!
The colors of the duck go so very well next to the color of the water, caught in a perfect moment.
Very good are also the POV, sharpness and the framing.
...and it is not just a SIMPLE duck shot...it's a very good one.

This is a good shot Ozcan, with a nice reflection. I really like the frame, but I think this picture deserves a longer note. Well done & TFS!

Hello Ozcan,
This is a beautiful work, because the duck in this blue water is very nice, and has a good framing. I think that your note is extremely short, it´s not a simple duck is a great shot!
Best regards

Hi Osse. Simple it is but perfect of this duck. Colours , clarity and framing are excellent. Murray.

This is a very relaxing blue color on which you managed to construct a great yet simple composition! I like the ripples in the water too! Great job!
