I really like the motion in this shot. The composition and color are great. Unfortunately, it doesn't follow the rules of the challenge (no motion blur)
A great shot though.

its a nice photo - however the description mentioned no motion blur. to freeze the action.

I think not completely stopped but it was going very fast I think also.

Didn't the challenge brief specifically ask for no motion trails? Outside this challenge, I'd rate this very highly, but here, it's off the mark. 3 for a great shot.

I don't know how or when you took this.. i mean a bird falling on a rock..that shouldn't happen that much :D
The only problem I see with the shot is that its not stopped. I see motion blurr on the wings and water droplets as well.

WOW....Good shot!! Love the way you've caught the drops of water in this.

This is great image though you might say that you are not stoping the motion (you are showing it).

It`s a good photo but fails the challenge because of the motion blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a really good image but no doubt you`ll have many comments on the fact that it`s more "motion blur" than "stopped action" which is a great shame as it probably won`t get the score it deserves because of that.
Great capture.

I like it, except for the motion trails. It should be "stopped".
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely idea but there is motion blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great photo, but I'm sure others are also telling you about the motion blur which the rules say is not allowed. Quicker shutter and you've got yourself a winner though.

Nice shot.
I interpreted the challenge to be produce a shot without motion blur, which this has lots of.

I would love to rate this photo higher. However, the motion is not actually stopped. It's incredibly blurred.

Sorry this is a great photo but the is too much motion blur.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/21/2004 09:20:07 AM
Good shot but it has motion trails (see description). Nice DOF and background looks great.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think the rich colours and tones are beautiful. The compostion presents the subject well also. It is a little hard to make out the details of the image. Good Luck.

I see alot of motion, but it's a really nice shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

nice pic a little too much motion blur for this challenge
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 10:38:23 PM
more shutter speed to capture the motion... this is too blurry.. but great subject, crop, and color
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I really like this photo. Good color, and excellent stopping of the water droplet motion, in with blurred motion of the wing and tail. Great dof.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 09:11:21 AM
I think it is showing too much motion in the bird. There are some water droplets that you have managed to freeze, but not enough to let me see Stopped Motion

great shot 10

You probably get this alot but that the rules.
Catch your subject mid-action -- that means no motion trails!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 07:39:21 AM
where's the stop motion?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/20/2004 12:33:29 AM
this is a nice shot, but too much blur for this challenge I think....still a 6
