Great feeling of sweeping strokes - you can feel texture in the detail in the highlights...

The lights from moving traffic was always going to be an obvious call but the composition here really raises this well beyond the norm - really captivating piece.

My runaway favourite image in the challenge - just love the subdued colours and aristocratic lines.
(though sadly I suspect your votes will be compromised by the small image size)

I'm a bit of a stickler in the DNMC stakes - can't see the point in setting a challenge if you're not going to meet it - but i actually think this shot 'interprets' the concept quite successfully/imaginatively. I like the way it 'mirrors' the obvious interpretation of capturing a moving element within a still landscape, and the challenge becomes to capture a still element in a moving landscape. I think it meets the challenge quite interestingly.
For the execution to really work though I think a tripod would have been essential - the 'still' bits really need to be 'still' and the camera shake spoils that important element of the illusion.
Good shot at the challenge though.

From your comments: "I know the eyes where OOF but I had to go for the happy medium and focus between the eyes and her beak..."
I think this works so well preciseley because her eyes are in soft focus... it's like she's coming in to attack you in which case your focus would be on the beak and the eyes would fall into the background.
The image is from the perspective of the victim - if you'd focused on the eyes and let the beak blurr it would suggest more the 'self perspective' of the attacker (ie it would be concentrating on the victim through its eyes. And now I'm starting to ramble incoherently again - sorry :)
BTW did i mention this is a stunner. I hate to say it deserved a ribbon 'cos that's a bit disrespectful of the images that did... but it deserved a ribbon!

Yes, on reflection, and having considered the concept of 'bokeh' I agree.
I think bokeh should not really show any recognisable shapes, more an emotive blur of colour/tones.

I'd originally shot this with a view to entering the 'after the game' challenge, and switched at the last minute - i think my original choice would have been more appropriate.
Thank you.   Thank you very much.

Apart from being an absolutely superb shot technically it fits the challenge imaginatively (and even humurously) - not just 'qualifying' on account that there's a wing in the picture somewhere the bird is looking at its wing and inspecting it. The wing IS the subject. A deserved first place indeed, and one amongst a very high standard of entries too.

It's a DREAM - the over exposure, I'd suggest, is there to give the image an ethereal feel - I think the idea/concept is apt to the challenge, if anything a stronger even contrastier image may have increased the effect.
I think the image has a great deal of potential... maybe try monotone? or just the slightest hint of colour?.. dunno, just kicking around some thoughts.

This is a really excellent image - great balance of colour and movement. Not one for DP Challenge perhaps but don't let that detract. Great work.

My art history is appauling. I Googled 'Vermeer'. I'm so glad he turned out to be Dutch! :-)

Again - congrats on an excellent piece.
