I can't believe this didn't finish higher it was one of the best as far as I was concerned.

Nice detail and colours and patterns. Not sure I like the somewhat chaotic composition, in particular the inclusion of hte bird and reflection to the left. Were that part of the frame pure black, with just the bird at the right and the ripples in the water, I think it would be even stronger. 7

Very well done ! I hope the unusual subject placement enhances your score, as it should. The reflection of the other bird in the water adds interest and increases the lovliness of this shot. 10

great idea, composition, colors and lighting are good, just a small overexposed spot on the pink head.

Nice! I like the angle and the reflection creating the different colors. Clear focus!

The patterns captured add alot of interest here however the OOF bird is distracting due to the colour and brightness as compared to the one that is in focus.
