This is a nice capture, but would have been much better IMHO if you had cropped out the bird in the background. Nice shot though.

I would have like to seen a closer shot without the distracting shadows and other bird in the background, nice capture though.

Nicely captued, pity he's in shadow though. Very tricky lighting conditions.

Interesting shadows. This fits the challenge well the only complaint I have is he bird in the background. Its badly out of focus. Yet in focus enough to have the veiwer trying to see the background. I feel your DOF should have been either shorter making it just a shadowy figure or deeper allowing the veiwer to enjoy the second bird in all it's splendor. As is I find it unapealing .. Otherwise great shot.
