Enjoying a sunny and mild winter day even the ducks are out for a stroll.

Sometimes it's okay to shoot into the sun! Great photo!

I specialize in shooting into the sun... you probably know that by now. LOL. Love this shot!

Very impressive! I think, that B&W enforced this effect yet. Very good photo.

Anne said...

Such a great picture from you as usual of course :-)

I find this picture soooo beautyful, peaceful and quiet! The first thing I saw were the benches, then the ducks, and I suddenly realised they were walking ON water! so the river is all in ice?!..Normal for you, but I've NEVER seen a river all in ice like this!I find it so beautyfully impressive!

I like this one a lot! Not keen on the other, but I always prefer strong B&W.

Congrats on making the Wall!

I absolutely love this shot. The picture is well balanced, and the 2 silhouette bring a lot to the general composition. I noticed at the end the 3 ducks walking away on the frozen lake, which also adds interest. This was the perfect picture to take in B&W!

Love the way the silhouette effect dominates and how shooting into the sun works here.

This turned out well for shooting into the Sun.

My thoughts were the same as Malyss'. I liked the brilliant "water", liked the people, loved the ducks -an added bonus to a great photo. My son (ever the 15 year-old critic) thought this one was a terrific photo too.
