Morning walk, April 1, 2018

Bad news: I left the camera on ISO 2000 for a bright morning in the sunshine. Good news: Full-frame camera recovered some decent shots.

  1. Nice, Harold.

    If I may comment, try bringing the exposure on the first one down a little to capture some more detail in the white feathers, especially at the duck's right rear. Just lowering the whites will help, but you might also get a bit nicer green in the head.

    Also, pay attention! That photograph would be a lot better if you had included the full reflection of the duck in the water.

      1. Harold,

        Glad I'm helpful.

        I'm purely an amateur, but have taken a number of classes/workshops from time to time, and my comments here often repeat points that instructors have made about my own photographs.
