    Maybe the sharpening would be a good guess. But I still don't think it detracts as I didn't notice it. I still say this would do well in Japan!

    Does anyone have a clue as to what made this subject look as though it had been pasted onto the background? Could it be the sharpening that Neat mentioned in her comment?

    Yikes, thats one ugly looking bird. The colors of feathers do looking like they are beautiful though. Nice entry.

    Lovely sharp shot. It really draws you in down the head and on to the beak.

    Looks like a classic Japanese print. An immediate favourite.

This could easily be my No. 1 pick but no matter what it is Top 5. An absolutely perfect image, perfectly clean. l'm betting many will overlook just how special this one is.

    mrsawyer, the background is from the camera. I was somewhat looking down and the duck was on the ground at the edge of the water. At this angle it think the background is the water. No layers involved.

    Good capture of the duck's head and back. The lighting, color and detail are very good. There is a small halo around the creature as though it has been placed on a different background, but there is no mention of this in your post-processing. So, I wonder why the halo exists. Curious??? In my favs.

    A bit over sharpened, I can see outlines all over the birds head.

Lovely pose though :)
