Good strong impact. Congratulations on your top five finish.

such a sharp shot that could be improved imo by pushing the levels and contrast a little....to lessen the impact of the hot shot as well as to produce richer...more vibrant colors...congrats on being no. 5

8 - Nice clarity, detail and strong coloring. Criticism; difficult given you've likely cropped it like this for a reason - and does work like this anyway in my opinion, but perhaps a little tighter at the bottom and looser at the top/more space (depending what you had to work with of course), may have made this even better in my opinion.

Amazing sharpness and feather and eye detail. Background is a little distracting, but gives a tropical feel. Very nice.
