A Parade of Sorts (Five Photographs)

MergansersTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

These are merganser ducks under the care of their mother. Nothing says spring like baby ducks. Shy, wary and very fast-moving when they want to be. Having seen them before and coming across them again since this shoot, they are still a marvel to see. Their colors are nicely set out against the background of the water. Very little post processing required; noise reduction, sharpening and some contrast/exposure adjustments.

  3. I have been looking for reference works for “paint and wine” parties that I do. I really like the merganser parade, and wonder if you mind if I paint a version of this to teach from. I like the last photo best, but would add some other elements in the background – make it that the water edge is about 1/3 down from the top, add reeds there, and some sky. Would that be ok with you?
