Excellent capture and the dof is great. The image is sharp and the colours are spot on.

Great composition and subject matter. Lighting and detail are good, rich in color without being over-saturated. Excellent timing on the shot! ((8))

This is one of the best flying bird shots I have seen. In my opinion it is the placement of the horizon line and the colors of the blue and green background that make this so powerful. Great capture. 10

This is just beautiful. So many people never get animals right. You gotta get the eyes, and you did. You gotta make them look natural, and you did. You gotta get them sharp, and you did. And you gotta somehow emphasize them, and your depth of field here is just perfect. I love it. Good luck in the challenge!

Love the detail of the bird and the position of the wings (very unusual to me because in most pictures I see they are fully extended rather than bent). Not crazy about the change in background color though. The green (or maybe its the blue) is a bit distracting and doesn't have the same feel as the other side. My husband disagrees, and it is still alot better than I could do, but that's my 2 cents. I gave this a 9.

Your focus on this is amazing. What a beautiful picture! Good luck! I can't see one way this could be improved. 10

I really like this shot! Brilliant DOF, the clarity in the bird and it's feathers is amazong. The colours are so vibrant and it's eye looks in perfect focus. Well done! Full marks :-)

Great expression on the bird's face! A little dark on my monitor.
