|Altered Image #1|
Using PSE6, I cropped your shot to put the duck in a stronger position within the frame.
This left the shot a little, too elongated, so I extended the frame at the top and copied and pated new b/g into the area. I matched to the b/g with the clone tool.
Now, the duck is off-centre and has space to walk into.
Hope you approve of the changes.
