This one is for my dad… a lover of waterfowl. I live 700 miles away, and wanted to do something for him….

Original photography by Kimberley Britt – copyright 2012
Fuji FinePix S3Pro – St. Paul, Minnesota (Como Park)
many layers in Photoshop including: my own textures (2), and textures by Pareeerica (da), Jessica Drossin, and finished with a lovely paint texture by Leslie Nicole at Frenchkiss. Also did a box blur run on the background, then level adjustments, mask clean up, and saturation.

    I’m sure your father will like this, Kim.. how is he doing?

    Mallards are under-appreciated.. but not by you.. you captured this fellow’s beauty so perfectly!

  • Thanks so much Kat, I do love Mallards…. as does my dad, so this is a nice fit. He is doing ok, he will have quite an adjustment, but I have some Uncles (his brothers) who are close to him and will help him through this, and I will plan a trip after the new year…. also, giving him a call tomorrow.
    Thanks again for your kind comments!! xxX

  • PS ….I did a black & white version of this too, Kat…. I think you will like it! The Mallard is amazing even without all his color! : } xx
