This was taken at a small spill-off pond just on the outskirts of the reserve I frequent. Some Canada Geese distracted me and it took a few minutes before I saw the flotilla of wood ducks headed my way. The color of the water is just one of those things, it’s not the cleanest of water. In post I tightened up the shots by cropping, sharpening and adding a touch of tonal contrast. I made sure my main characters were well-lit and the contrast pleasing to the eye. The ducks turned in front of me and walked into the woods, what would you expect from wood ducks?
