Went to Grimsey and got amazed by the huge population of puffins there. They where peaking up from their holes in the cliffs, when I got closer they streamed like waterfall from there to sea. Couldn't get that well since their back was black against black cliffs but I like this shot.

Cloned a tiny bit of the other wing peaking up it's head, darkened and USM.

How funny is this!!! It's a tad soft/darkish and I feel if you had cropped out the tiny yellow flowers in the fuzzy part of the bottom, they wouldn't a distraction.

beautiful image, but probably not the best challenge to have entered it in. the motion that you've stopped just isn't that dramatic.

Nice capture, but you might want to cut back on the sharpening to avoid the pronounced edge halo.

I like puffins and the cheeky shot adds to the fun. Great DOF as well

Now where have we seen this fella before? ;^) It's a very cute shot, but I don't think there's enough motion to stop in the viewers mind. And even then, the wing is still blurred, not really "stopped". Best of luck to you.
