    It definatly makes it stand out more... I would suggest making the background only halfway saturated instead of fully b&w. It might make it blend better.

    I really do like this photo though! great job! :)

    I think you are on the right track, I also like this one better than the full b&w background. Maybe try adding some blur to the background, you may even be able to keep the background in full color.

    I agree with Big Mike, some photoshop lens blur would work nicely. nice shot!

    And isn't this a Canada goose?
    Great capture. Let us see how you play with it further to enhance the situation, will you?

    definately looks better blurred. Seem to have blurred the edges of the duck as well though. Still a really nice shot though
