Image was taken shortly before sunset. Part of the water was lit, most of it was already in the shadow of tall trees.

Terrific lighting which nicely enhances his eye. I think the image appears to be slightly tilted, but may be a roll of the water if taken off the pier.

Nice exposure and the detail really pops in the large view.

Great image, Karl- very nice patterns and colours in the water, as well as the merganser being photographed so well.

Really a magnificent specimen with such superb detail and light.
