doesn't look like a beguin to me, but this was the most interesting image I had, and for beguin I cannot bore myself. this was taken with the camera's high contrast b/w mode. I added more contrast with curves.

camera is actually the X100T but dpc doesn't have that yet.

*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An action shot that may meet the challenge.

Without spending more time than I have exploring JJBeguin's images I have to admit that I am not familiar enough with his work to be able to judge your entry in the context of his work/the challenge brief, hence, I assume it meets the challenge. However, I do have the benefit of JJBeguin's comment who seems to approve so that's good enough for me!

As an image in its own right regardless of the challenge brief I do like the diagonal running through the image and I like that is mono and although it is intentionally high contrast there is still good detail throughout. What I am not so keen on is the focus which appears to be soft throughout which may be deliberate to meet the challenge brief? It would have more impact if the bird was flying towards us as opposed to away but again it may be deliberate? The overall composition is good.

I'm sorry your image doesn't appear to have been so well appreciated as you would have liked, perhaps that is an indication of how well, or otherwise, it fulfils the challenge brief? Anyway, thanks for your submission, Sid

This is an image of good company. Not sure why; perhaps I was there.
