    Zach, I hope you ended up getting in touch with someone at Replica. If not please let me know and I can get you proper contact info. I see you may have. I have seen these up close and cant wait for you to see them! They are truly a one of a kind decoy that look amazing in any weather condition. I had the pleasure of hunting over a few of the honker decoys this year and not only do they look great, but they held up amazing too!

    Those pictures are ok...

    Here is some advice that some pretty decent photographers gave to me as far as shooting pictures (no matter what the subject matter is).

    • Try to get the sun behind you for natural lighting on the subject (you are facing the sun in these pictures, which is why the decoys look so dark).
    • Try to take the picture at the same level as the subject (so you are not shooting down on them).
    • Tuck your elbows into your chest for better picture stability and less blur.
    • Get as close as you can to the subject matter, leaving just enough room to crop for mistakes later (on a program such as photoshop).
    • Get photoshop.
    • Morning and late afternoon provide good lighting for pictures when possible. Noon is about the worst time to take pictures.

    The above advice has provided me some nice pictures for the hunting/fishing album, as well as the family album... I am however not holding out to be on the cover of National Geographic...

    No problems so far, kept in slotted bag and no issues with paint rubbing off or anything.
