I look up to the little bird that glides across the sky
He sings the clearest melody it makes me want to cry
It makes me want to sit right down
And cry cry cry

My gal Annie!! Glorious capture. Ribbon-worthy. I love how the wings fill the frame, which is punctuated by its oof partner.

My pick for the BLUE - one of the few shots that actually understood the process, IMHO - Bravo!

I seriously hope this takes blue. This image for me covers all bases in this challenge - High Key, Soft Focus and Blur all at once. Apart from that, it's just a damned fine image. You've nailed the composition, have excellent technicals and created art too! You received a 10 from me earlier - well deserved.

eta: This reminds me of Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1022040.jpg and I liked it, too.
