All of my personal highest scoring images are either blue or purple. So, I'm completely baffled how this black and white quirky pelican plopped himself down right here!

Absolutely Beautiful!

This is a real beauty -- gorgeous tonal range. The setting adds so much. I want a little more reflection but the composition is beautifully balanced as it is so that's just me wanting to see more of the feather detail. A top pick for me.

This is my favorite entry of the challenge. This is some amazing and inspirational work! The soft reflections in the water add a calm feeling to the overall image. The photo is full of mid-tones which is so rare anymore. The subject is not being limited in the frame by a rule of thirds or some other general composition rule. To me this image is a very confident style. It is bold to break the rules of composition. This one is perfect! I hope to see it on the front page when the challenge closes.
