Hello Hernan, this has some lovely lighting and colour in the water. I like the central composition here as it really sits well. Perhaps the duck could be a tiny bit sharper but it's a very pleasing shot. Well done.

The composition, colors and contrast here is just awesome. This would be a picture I would expect to see printed hanging above somones sofa. Very nice. I love this shot.
