Awesome shot smali, the colours are just perfect and the clarity is spot on. Congrats on your 4th spot, I think it was worthy of a ribbon myself, and only your second entry! You have set yourself a high standard, I just hope you can keep it going - looking forward to more of your work.

This was the only image I rated a 9, and the highest rating I gave. Although one commenter said it was "not even all THAT triangular", I clearly note the inverted triangle from tip of black tail feathers to wingtips-across forewings-back to black tail feathers. Really nice rich colors. Worthy of a blue, in my mind, but the falcon shot was pretty sharp too. Congrats on a 4th.

Beautiful image - you have captured the feeling of flight. Congratulations

This is an extraordinary shot. It's not even all THAT triangular, so its high finish speaks to how captivating it is. A wonderful image. Congrats!

This is the most unusual, breathtaking image I have seen in years.

Oooh, I think we're gonna have to ban the Icelandic folk so we can have a chance at a ribbon. Only kidding, well done on getting a a good result. I kept coming back to this picture to gaze at the bird. How long did you have to wait to capture this one?

Really beautifullllll !!!!!!
05/17/2005 06:45:03 PM
WOW ! Such great colours, maybe a slight bit too centered but bar that I cant suggest anything... Good job, Good luck ;0)
05/17/2005 06:30:46 PM
The horizon looks to be a half degree or so off (high on the right side) but is a beautifully captured image and the way you highlight the duck is very good. This will be a top finisher.
05/17/2005 04:44:53 PM
This is a goooooooorgeous photo - nice capture of the bird taking off! I love the colors, and predict that this will place highly......
05/17/2005 04:42:46 PM
Wow, great shot!
05/17/2005 04:42:00 PM
Tempted to say 'kucky shot', but I know the skill involved. Great image.
05/17/2005 01:36:30 PM
Excellent shot and colors... 10
05/17/2005 10:33:12 AM
A great shot that meets the challenge with a great 'splash' of color.
05/16/2005 05:54:47 PM
Very nice! Love the colours.
05/16/2005 03:47:37 PM
This is my favourite so far, some might give some feedack (take a photograph where this basic shape is clearly shown as a key element. This may be a triangular object, or a group of items forming a triangle.)

This achieves this for me and I hope others score the same way
05/16/2005 01:21:41 PM
Wonderful shot! Very crisp, nice colors. In my top 5.
05/15/2005 09:44:59 PM
Great capture. Nice rich colors.
05/14/2005 08:28:55 PM
love the colors and the contrast
05/14/2005 08:05:39 PM
This is a really stunning shot. But in my opinion it would look even better if you cropped it in such a way that the bird was closer to the corner.
05/14/2005 12:40:24 PM
Awesome! Great... um... evrything. (insert ribbon here) :)
05/14/2005 07:45:54 AM
I have enough problems taking shots of sunsets, let alone trying to take a photo of something in flight! I'm guessing that this was taken at a high ISO setting. There is a spot of noise apparent at the top of the photo, but I don't find that it detracts from the photo. You eye gets drawn to the duck, and it just leaves you in amazement. Well done!

Great shot! The clouds are unbelievable. The position of the duck's wings is absolutely gorgeous. Nice sharp details and color. Composition is very apealing. Good luck !

Very wonderfull shot. The shot is perfect in every way exept it dosn't fit the challenge very well the triagle is a little weak IMO. But I don't care I just love this shot!!! great tones and clolors, a smooth silky feel to everything. I almost feel like I could touch the water. Great shot would ahve been a 10 but without a more defined triangle I can't force myself to go over an 8. Still a great shot!! Nice Job!!

Oh man, beautiful. Shallow DOF to get rid of the rest around the duck would be perfect. Noise in the blue sky is a bit of a problem, but over all a very nice photo. 9
