Very nice detailed flight shot of this baldpate against a great BG.

Dan, Great image. Particularly like how the BG colors compliment the colors on the bird. My only suggestion is to try and bring down the highlights on the white spot on the wing.

Gene, if you read this, you are correct, the whites are a bit blown....
