18/52 for 52 in Twenty Eleven

This week's theme: straight out of camera

I wasn't having much luck with ideas for SOOC because I'm stuck in the house struggling with deadlines. However, I took a detour yesterday when I went to go shopping. And by 'detour' I mean that I headed out of town in completely the opposite direction to the Co-op and drove to the nearest picturesque spot. :)

The weather has broken, we have rain, so the light was dreary and grey, but I thought this duck, standing meditatively on one leg as though performing some kind of ducky yoga wasn't too bad straight out of the camera.

For comparison, here is the same photo as I would normally tweak it in PhotoShop to just bring out the detail a little better.
