Mallard Duck

Contrasting colours are those that appear on the opposite side of the colour wheel and you have nailed this with orange and blue.

You have lost all photographic information on the white and that is due to exposure this case overexposure and no matter how much time you spend on burning information in nothing will show up.

I do find this image very calming and nicely cropped and centered with good marginal space all around.

Very beautiful duck. I'm not sure if this is an American Mallard although the head is green. Very unique and very contrasting colors. Nice framing and the beautiful blue water help tremendously.

This duck looks like he is resting. Our Mallards have the red breast, this one has a white one and his red is lower, interesting, love the reflection on the water.

Well - Definitely hit it out of the park for the contest theme. You have some major contrasting colors here. The image is ever so vibrant in that way. Great focus with very good detail. Thanks for sharing and good luck.

Your image is definitely full of strong colours, possibly too strong. The water is a gorgeous and amazing blue! Your central image is a good composition making the viewer immediately look at the duck. The mallard, though, is not sharp and I feel the whites have been over-exposed.

The contrasting colors are stunning in this scene. The deep blue water really sets off the duck and his reflection. A very good entry for the contest ~ Steve

A very nice shot of the sleeping mallard. The colors are somewhat oversaturated but that should serve you well in this contest. Best of luck in the voting.
