Stunning! A slight crop to de-center the duck wouldn't go amiss, but nonetheless a really really incredible shot, well done!!!!

Yeah I wondered that too Ripstar That must be a flash used on the duck , which makes we wonder about range etc. A flash would partly explain the sharpness and lack of movement in the background. Even if it is a PS job, it's still excellent.

Guys, I think it has to be flash but the exif info is really weird...still a great shot! If it's merged in PS it becomes something else. And I become disappointed. Hope not!

Yes slightly odd EXIF, 1/350s, which rules out flash?

Nice image. I agree, looks like a clone job, because there is two places on the duck that are like see through, small cloning mistakes I guess. If the duck is not cloned onto the background, then probably flash used. I do clone too sometimes to remove the worst background problems, but I find adding new stuff on photos is not for my taste (bad taste).
Best regards,
Tobio
