Good lighting and nice sharp image. I like the gleam on the head and the glint in his eye. The background is unobtrusive too and sets a nice scene. Excellent capture.

This shot looks like it's straight out of a magazine. Wonderful capture, but it's the colors that amaze me most about this shot. Great job!

Great job capturing a bird in flight...I know this is not easy...I do find that the background is a litte distracting...

beautiful capture, one of my top picks for the challenge. i think the image could be strengthened by cropping a little from the left.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/06/2004 10:54:44 PM
great colors, and great execution...my only 2 nitpiks, and they are minimal....personally, the composition i fell would be better cropped a bit more on the left, and I know most people like it, but to me it looks like a bit too much Neat Image?? I could be wrong? Still a 7 from me....nice job!

Brilliant colors. My only criticism would be to put the duck center. It doesn't really seem to follow the rule of thirds, or have a center composition, so it looks kind of funky the way it is. 7.

Sharp shot. Nice colors and working in bright sun no less. Very good exposure. Perhaps crop with less frame behind the duck. Nice work. -danny

Great shot. Beautiful duck usually easy to take picture on the lake but not so easy in flight. Contrast seems a bit heavy but one of the best in this challenge.

Wonderful photograph! Bright colors. Like the dof. Great stopped motion. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Awesome, awesome color here. But the crop makes me feel like I'm being left out of the action. Could you have left more in front of his beak?

Great shot looks like it is a tad over sharpened as can be seen by the white dots. They could have been cloned out. Still nice though.

Amazing fall colours - in the bird and the background. Aweomse sense of movement. Love that the eye is looking back at you. This is going to do really well!
