Quest for Holy Quack by DanielZrno Quest for Holy Quack by DanielZrno

with sun in their sight
the ducks follow the light
they quack and never rest
for they are on a quest!

I love the sheer emotion of this photo, in fact it's probably one of my favourite photo's on DA.

The Vision you've created is very interesting, I'm loving the mist on the lake and the huge rays of sunlight gleaming through the tree in the right hand corner.

When it comes to Originality, it's the only thing that lets this photo down. I've seen so many photo's of ducks on lakes, however this one of beautiful, stunning, but not original.

As for Technique, I like what you've done, no fancy angles or editing, just a plain picture, true to what it is. Brilliant. I'm sorry I'm not more thorough in this field but there's nothing more to say than that it's fantastic!

And finally for Impact. Wow, I love it, the impact from this photo is simply fabulous, the sun glinting through the tree onto the lake is just beautiful. This photo is easy on the eye and just brilliant.

I wish this critique could give this photo justice but I'm not feeling very well at the moment so this critique may seem quite vague. I just couldn't wait to critique this photo and needed to do it today! Just keep up the fantastic photo's and I will definately be watching you and critiquing more of your photography when I'm feeling a little better.

... a light-chaser, you well and truly are. I actually feel breath-less, going through your work. I don't have the stamina to comment on everything I adore and I don't think that you'd like to read all that either. But my God, you really have a certain je ne sais quoi that just turns every single one of your photographs into a masterpiece. I have not often said this, and I am usually very sparingly and careful with handing out compliments, but you have just about become one of my most favourite photographers. Your art is outstanding.

I could not really add much more as Optimistar is so right on with her critique. Just love this. There is nothing quite like a mist rising from a lake or pond in the morning. Those glorious beams of light are an incredible addition! Better then a hot cup of cocoa on a rainy morning. Love it! Oh and the Title, put a big smile on my face. Funny!

That looks fantastic! I love that there are birds. Often those pictures look a little bit sad because they look lonley even I like those photos. I love how the light is falling on the through the tree and shows the steam.

Yeah, I agree. I often try to incorporate local "residents" into the scene, makes things... somehow more alive.
