Patti, that is the cutest little duckling! Does it classify as a duckling?...it looks quite small.

yeah, he was with his family, but it was a "blended" family...there were babies from different families, all together, with one mama and daddy, watching over them all, he was the little one, and was looking back at me, I forgot my popcorn today, so they only stayed for a minute or two, but he was a little wistful...I got a really good one of him, flapping his wings, on da duck o' the day...he was WAY cute, CM. Sorry GR...I wanted to participate on your thread, and this was all I had for today, tomorry I will do better, and promise no more quackage up here...this is going to be a great little thread, and fun project..

Comments and critique welcome?? For the second shot, I can see the sun is coming from the left of the frame, a cool idea might have been to take the shot from down low, you a little bit to the left of the front of the statue, so that it creates a silhouette, the sun behind the statue, then you using the built in flash as fill flash. In your camera settings there should be a setting where you can increase/lower the output of the flash to make it a bit softer as well. Just a thought, hope you don't mind me thinking out loud here :oops: :wink:

Great shot, Syncharmony, I love the DoF and the water dropslets.
Nice ducks Patti. I saw some ducks already in the "Duck of the Day"-thread, I believe it was. The left one looks funny.
I like Nick's second picture, it's an interesting sculpture. You may want to crop it a little, all the trees and sky above the head are unnecessary.

No pics for me today.

Assuming this thread takes off, I hope it can get stickied so we don't have to scroll around to find it all the time.

I fixed the duck, GR...thanks for the heads up on that...will watch my size from here on out... :lol:
