Thanks, Dennis.

Composite?  Duck chick on the table looks fake and does not fit in.  I would eliminate both of them.  Otherwise, good job.

Dennis, like Charles, I wondered if this was a composite.

 

Were the ducklings in the original image?  Even if they were, they look out of place with the rest of the image.

 

I don't know if you can do very much with the painting, but that is the first thing in the image that draws my eye. Then I notice the girls. 

 

I really like the facial expressions and posture of both girls.  :)

I agree with the others about the duck on the table, otherwise an awesome photo.


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Well, I have to respectfully disagree!

Why?

The ducks are not only unexpected... they make the image very interesting!

It draws your attention in and adds and dimension of fun and levity to the portrait.

Leave the ducks in.

If anything, just the one on the table.

Thanks all. Art is right, I was going for the novelty of the image. The cow looking out of the frame. The expression on the gals. It was a quick grab shot while I was working with a model. The goose on the take brings it all together. The goose on the chair is the bit that needs to go.

If you look, the cow eye is the top of a triangle, the gals bodes point up and the table completes the triangle. The goose on the table helps to bring you in, in lue of a vase of flowers. All the faces, make the story. At least, that what I was going for.

Thanks, Dennis.
