Re: Upon Reflection

Fantastic Andy.
I know it isn't LFP (here she goes sticking the neck out!) but have you thought about cropping a bit of the top weed out? I think that beautiful duck really pops then. Just a thought.

Hi

I tried lots of different crops but in the end like the square the most. I'll have a play with your suggestion later.

Thanks all for the comments and likes.

Re: Upon Reflection

The reflection is excellent, of course, but I also like the circular ripples radiating from the duck and the symmetry of it facing the camera full on.
