Duck - Print-a-Day-6

This is number six in the series "Print a Day for 30 Days."

This duck is a visitor to a small pond in a park near my home.

The reflections on the pond surface made this one of the more challenging prints so far.  Printers generally have difficulty with some of the hues in the blue-green area.   There is a lot of subtle detail in the pond surface that relies on these specific colors.

It's the first print that had very significant differences in the settings between the screen and print versions.  In the end, the print version looks fine, but my skills haven't quite developed to the point where I can achieve the depth that is seen on the screen.  I've flagged this image for more work in the future.
