Photo a Day Challenge

Mallard Duck – May 6, 2013


Goldwater Lake just out of Prescott, AZ. As an after thought, I took a cople of pictures of of the ducks on the lake, right by the dock. Batching the pictures through LightRoom, I noticed how sharp the photos of the ducks were. The sun, clear water, (see both feet), the droplets on the ducks head, the extreme detail of the feathers make this image one that I’m excited to say that “I took”. Shot on Saturday 5/04/2013. LightRoom used to convert the image to jpeg, ONLY. No enhancements. Canon 5D Mark II, ISO-50, F8, 1/200 sec, the 24-105 mm F4, L, IS lens is tack sharp.  Canon Speedlight 580 EX II on camera for flash fill.
