Challenge: Hidden Gem III (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2013 Challenge shots
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS

Truly a hidden gem -- I rated this, but never went back to process it, I had others that I like more at the time. I probably never really would have seen it again.

Because of this challenge, I just found it again, and was really please on how well it cleaned up!

The rest of my choices were all shots I remembered well. So it was fun finding a "hidden" gem.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!!

This was my 10 of the few I scored or regarded worthy of a score. Love your work!

Congrats on the TT finish Wendy. It's a lovely shot but you sure were spoiled for choice. It must have been a hard decision.

The mirror image is almost more crisp and sharp than the actual object. This is a very interesting image.

Something about this makes me feel like he is dancing. Great detail in the reflection and in the feathers. One of my top picks for this challenge. Good Luck

It is a stunning reflection, but with just the left wing out I immediately thought of ... the Hokey Pokey LOL.

Great job with the contrast here. Really makes the bird come alive.

If this is your hidden gem - you must have lots of ribbons with your exposed gems.

WOW, when I first viewed this, I could only see the top half, then I scrolled it down and saw the reflection, I think it's more mesmorising than the top half, wonder what it would look like flipped, just a thought.

Outstanding. well done.

Wonderful image enhanced by the triangulation above and below the reflection. I suspect a wee fish in bill too? Deserves a high score but will the DPC of late oblige? I have my suspicions of the photographer but there are at least half a dozen who can pull this off.
