Lovely! I like how there's movement in the wings (obviously!) but the head is still, and the duck is looking at you
Lovely focus on the eye - and getting him looking right at you is great for this sort of shot - normally there is the motion, but less eye contact in such shots.
I'm thinking I should shoot more often with my strobe Good pic
Actually, this was taken with natural ambient light...no flash/strobe.
Shutter speed was set fast enough to freeze head but slow enough to show the motion of the flapping wings.
Nice capture, I'm kind of liking the blur of the wings in this shot....
I didn't think this was taken with only natural light, either. To me, too, it looks like a photo taken in the sun but with a flash. I'm surprised to hear this was not so.
A nice image - like the others, I like the wing motion and the sharp eye/head.
A normal intensity flash, (i.e. not a weaker fill flash), would have frozen the wings as well as the neck/head. This is the best of both worlds, I think, as the head stays relatively sharp and the wings express motion. Notice the last line, flash fired=false.
Here's some of the technical details if anyone is interested:
Perfect timing on this shot. The exposure was perfect, great job.
Cool image.....I really like the wing motion
