Went to a lake this morning to get some waterfowl. It was really foggy to start, but cleared up or so I thought.. I had some beautiful light, but it seams that atmosphere was still a little hazy when I started... the early pictures I took were not tack sharp with low ISO but a lot of noise. I will share non the less :-)

I had to turn the saturation down on this image. The water was reflecting almost pure orange.

Great set. The light and reflections are great in all. I really like the Pelican and the Peking Duck.

These are really beautiful. I also like the 2nd and 4th images. The pelican image seems to be blue-ish...yet I like it best anyway.
Nice!

Lovely work, Edward.

They're great photographs and the light and colour raises the to another level.

You've made the water a real character in the pictures

Well done Edward. The Swan is a bit soft on my monitor and the Pelican has a blue cast. I really like the both duck images. Great pose on the Peking duck. Wishing for a bit more head angle for a clearer eye but good exposure, feather detail and the splashing water adds to the image.

The swan is a bit soft, I tried to slide it by you. There was still some haze in the morning causing noise in my images and I did not realize. I still do not see the blue hue, but maybe when I get home. I believe it's there, just want to be able.to see it myself and I am sure when I add warmth I will. I to wish I had a little more angle on the Peking duck. Thank you for the critique! Honestly the more you guys can pic stuff apart, the faster I can improve and the better my images will be,
