CommentThe fight - its on! A moment of great action in which I liked the curved line connecting the three ducks as they battle for space. Normally I wouldn't want a bird facing the edge of the frame but because it is in flight and the duck below it is turned inwards and forwards , it completes the circle of action and works for me. The water action completes the overall image.
