I live on a lake and since I feed the birds I am constantly plagued by a flock of ducks looking to get their share. A very nice shot with good detail and excellent colors. Good luck in the contest.

Think your title is somewhat harsh! They are only doing what comes naturally; getting food from a reliable source!! Your fine composition offers us a good look at the scene. Exposure and sharpness are OK. Nicely taken!

You captured an interesting situation. I understand that the ducks are your subjects, but in my opinion your photo has two points of interest which fight which each other for attention. The cut of person above and the reflection in the shop-windows distract from the ducks. I personally would crop the photo just below the feet of the person. This leaves a part of the sidewalk which is not distracting, but shows the city-location. If you want the bakery in the photo, the whole shop including the bakery sign should be visible. This would be less distracting than the cut-off and we would know why the ducks are there.

nice artist notes, but the ducks, who are the main subject, are hardly seem and lost on the bright background

also, the pole and the half man in the right are a distraction

thanks for sharing

A beautiful picture of these six Mallard Drake's & three Ducks hopefully hanging around the Bakery's front door hoping someone will throw them some bread before they are much older. Beautiful composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

The is a storytelling image, the ducks out on the grass in front of the bakery , waiting for somone to through them some bread, the image is clear and well focused, interesting to view, well exposed, colors and tones appear natural in this lighting. Well presented!
