I learned alot about flamingos as I watched them endlessly. I clicked and clicked for an inordinate amount of time, trying to get just one that I loved.

Beautiful soft focus on the flamingo's head. Really like this image!

Very nice, but I would like to see more sharpness in the feathers around the eye. Right now only the lighter feathers below the beak are sharp. The colours are fantastic though. If it had a deeper DOF or better focus on the eye, this would have been my pick for blue.

One of the best; delicate and in perfect armony with the theme of the contest

Striking yet subtle, an almost poetic palette. The pose and depth of field are wonderful, fading into glorious bokeh. A tour de force.

Not voting in this challenge- Love the details of the feathers and how he is just chilling, the lighting gives this beautiful bird the touch this photo needed

This is one of my personal ribbon picks


My new personal spark ribbon :-)) Nice work
