His Majesty the Duck No2
Beautiful nature right on our doorstep. Taken on a beautiful Sun blessed morning of month May in Eynsford, river Darent, Kent, UK. The duck simply posed for this portrait, taken from approx 50cm away from ground level, no bait used, long wait on my knees for the duck to befriend me but worth it, no tripod used. I love the clarity and simplicity of the photo. Camera Canon Power Shot G12. JPG, 1/1000 f 4.5 ISO 100. After the shot, in Corel PSP, some minor cleaning of the duck beak and background, colour enhancement (hue/sat/brightness & contrast) and sharpening applied, hand sharpen on eye only. Square cropping.
