    This is a low quality scan.. The actual print is a little sharper and less muddy.

    Thanks...

    But still, but still:
    What a lucky shot!
    Was it just landing on the water?
    "Gallopping duck" - I read the title and thought: hey, what's expecting me there???
    How many photos did you take in order to get this one?
    Do you use b+w film? The b+w suits this picture, the water gets a good texture. The focus on the duck is just right, I say (but I'm not the best of critics here, I'm afraid, for I'm all emotional about what I see and almost blind to technical things).

    Heh, thanks. Yep, ISO 100 B&W film. It was pretty lucky to get this shot as I was honestly just taking various pictures of ducks. All of my other ones were still. I didn't even realize I had this at first - I was looking at the negatives and not really seeing what was going on, heh. It wasn't till I enlarged it till I really realized what I had.

    Thanks for the compliments! :)

    I agree...that is a GREAT shot! I really like the light reflections...er whatever....on the water towards the top of the picture. Course....water shots in general do it for me!
