The Mandies

The Mandies

Photo Information
More ducks! A Mandarin pair taken on sunday. I used the Pentax DFA 100mm and was hugely impressed with the outcome. This is quite a crop, much more than I would normally do, but the thing is very sharp! Great colours too. In my opinion of course. Best viewed big I think/hope...

A very colourful treatment for such a coloured ducky! Especially like the ripples and colourful reflection on the water.

Thanks Paul (I still can't help thinking it looks more vibrant when I view it elsewhere though...)
