3, 2, 1 or none at all?

A bit of a speculative punt this but which do people prefer 3, 2, or 1 or it just doesn't work at all?







I think 1 in the closer up shot is my favourite but still not sure if it works at all?

For some reason I like #3 best. I think it's because there is only one duck and the sparkles really become part of the picture. Well done.

I too would like ~3 best, but all work well.

Maybe the best image includes more objects (Boids) for interest…………….

Yup the single disco duck is the best at this display size for my money

The sparkles add a lot to the image where they look a bit noisy on the 2 duck and 3 duck compositions.

1st shot, with 3 ducks, for me - but I would lop off (most of) the dark area at the top left.

That was a brave exposure - No 3 for me too!

That's ok Dave it was a pretty speculative shot just to see if it worked at all. I got more than i expected to be honest and have grown to quite like it.
