On Lyngby lake the last mallard stand alone in the battle against mankind and urbanisation. Or at least that is what I like you to think with this framing. Of course he was far from alone and the small mallards had help from a couple of swans too if needed. I just liked the calm ice lake with the threat of the office block in the background.
B&W with a slight blue/cyan cast for the cold feeling. Original colors were sort of pale duck egg green due to shooting against the winter sun.

The vertical composition is well seen and nicely balanced here.
A simple and graphical photo that I like very much.

I like your post-edition to create this cold feeling. Composition is good too. Well done.

I think the silver sheen in this photo is very attractive, but the otherwise nice graphic composition lacks a little "tightness" IMHO, perhaps some cropping from the right to make the triangle of duck, trees and building "communicate" more with the frame of the photo.

Different people, different opinions...
I would maybe crop just a bit off the top, but this is not a must, of course, as the composition is good anyway!
What I like here are reflections and especially the clouds!

I life the monochromatic colors here. Very powerful...nice accompanying note.

Great composition! i specially like that the horizon line is just in the middle of the picture, and the bird at the front, i think it fill the image, it's very important element here.
