Trevor, that is a nice photo of a duck.  The problem is that everyone who has ever owned a camera has a bunch of similar shots.  If I was a judge in a PSA contest (5 points awarded for exceptional shot) I'd give that a three.  What that means is that it is a technically good shot with nothing to really criticize, but it lacks "impact".  Something that "moves" you.  As mentioned above it needs some action....maybe some ducklings tagging along, or maybe some behavorial activity by the subject.

It's not too hard to take photos like the one here, and it is a good one...but too easy and too often seen.  Really good photography is HARD work requiring patience and time and maybe lots of moving around.  Not saying you lack any of those things at all, just that good as it is this is a pretty pedestrain shot of a duck.
