I think some of you are going to get tired of getting your Critique Club comments from me.....

I think this is a great wildlife shot, it is very reminiscent of another shot on here but I can't remember who shot it. I think this is a case where the centered crop works nicely, all of the feathers are nice and sharp. As noted the exposure was nicely done as well.

Looking at the placing I wonder how the shot would have fared if we could see the face of the bird. Also, when the challenge is titles "Art of 2012" I have to look at every shot and ask myself "would I hang this on my wall?"

I don't know if I would categorize this shot that way, certainly a shot I would like to have in my collection but not necessarily one I would call art in the classic sense, if that makes sense? Again that's just one man's opinion and only for the sake of exploring why it finished where it did.

You caught a beautiful moment, for sure, with the ruffled feathers. Exposure is excellent. Voted earlier.
