Dave, you are quite talented!

I love the clarity, the composition, and the cute little guy himself!

The water is more attention grabbing than the duck! Nice.

The color, movement, and contrast of the water is beautiful. It keeps your eye moving, but also draws your eye to the duckling. I love it.

I've never analyzed a photo so much before in my life.
