For me there’s a certain subtle beauty to the Gadwall. I liked the complementary colors of the water.

What technical feedback would you like if any? Any

Pertinent technical details or techniques:

Canon 7DII; Sigma 150-600 at 600 mm; 1/1000 at f6.3; +2/3 EV; ISO 640

Nice shot, Allen. I never realized you have these as well. The colors surrounding the duck match very well with it. Cheers, Hans

My first thought when I saw this was “who posted my photo?”! I recently shot a right facing side profile of a male Gadwall that looks just like this! The only significant difference is that the water is blue in my photo. I agree with you about the subtle beauty of the Gadwall ducks. Nicely captured with good exposure and detail.

Nicely said Allen. There is a subtle beauty about them. A really nice side view showing off some details of that beauty.

Hi Allen, nice catch of the Gadwall - the water is complimentary so well seen and captured. I’d run another round of sharpening on the bird’s head - it looks a little soft to me.
