Over the edge and in

PP : Attempted to sharpen , and altered a little Red/Green contrast. Cropped.

I promised myself this month i'd find time to get an entry in, over the past 4 months i've tried and tried to find time and the inspiration to get a good entry in.

This one is not what I originally planned , but I was out walking with a lady friend today and saw this and thought of the competition .

The pic was taken very quickly and probably could have taken a much better one if I had more time and less nagging from the lady friend.

Original with EXIF is HERE

Goes with the theme , its just a shame its a little blurry.

Well done for getting an entry in. Definitely on theme & captured the moment. Composition is fine too. Faster shutter speed required though.

A good idea, but the duck is far too blurred. As Tobers said a faster shutter speed would solve this. :smashin:

For some very strange reason, I like this, and what a great mind to have though of such a subject. slightly faster shutter speed would definately have been the order of the day.:smashin:

Thanks for the comments so far , I agree on the shutter speed thing but my excuse was it was a spur of the moment and I was originally taking pics of my model for the day , she wasn't impressed when I snapped the duck . lol

I like the blur as it gives the impression of movement , if a little extreme!

There appears to be a lot of CA in the water which doesn't help the shot and you could have done with a slightly faster shutter to get the motion suggestion, but not too much. I think the motion is overdone here.

I think this a good effort. Agree with the rest about the duck being blurred but it isn't easy taking shot of animals.

i was at the mother-in-laws on sunday and there were some swans and ducks near the stream where she lives, i stood there for ages for the blighter to jump in and when he finally did my shot was 'blurred' too.:suicide:

So good try.

ps... your shot is different to the other duck shot..:cool:
