Decided to make this into a black & white from the original version called Cruising Along the River. Image was taken in 2010 on the St. Mary's River along our waterfront.

Want to add this to the Wednesday B/W Challenge. Hope you enjoy.

Thank You in Advance for your comments and taking the time out to come by.

A very nice shot for the b&w challenge. The bird is very nicely captured and the tones are very good.

You did a great job with this black and white, Pat. The duck looks great, and I bet no harm came to it in the desaturation process. LOL

Good clarity and details in the photo Pat. A nice smooth texture in the water and a good b/w presentation of the image.

Good one! And great entry for the challenge... This reminds me that I heard a loon calling on one of our ponds the other day, for the first time! Exciting...
