Overall nice, but would have liked to have (caught) that wingtip in. It appears a bit on the dark side in the midtones.

nice backlighting. border should be white. the black darkens the image too much.

I like the way the light is hitting the wings.

The light is exceptional, I really like the translucency in the birds feathers. Beautiful photograph!

Backlighting is interesting. Border detracts. Bad Title. Could the light have been adjusted lighter without blowing the highlights? Still very nice study of the wings.7

beautiful backlighting....

Absolutely captivating backlighting going on there. The reflection adds more appeal. My only suggestion for improvement would be showing the whole bird.

great shot and great lighting...crisp and almost 3D...love the composition...I think the black frame adds to the shot

Predator? Looks like bread crumbs to me. ;^) Nice photo with a fun composition and good exposure overall (may be a bit blown out near the neck area). Good luck in the challenge.

The right wing being cut off is a little distracting.
01/25/2006 03:39:03 PM
Wish the top of the wing wasn't chopped off. Love the backlighting.
01/25/2006 09:56:32 AM
Very nice, this would have done well in backlighting. I like the pose you've captured.
