Do not take away my burdens.
Give me the heavy wings of a swan,
thundering like sheets of steel.

Absolutely gorgeous shot. I don't know how you captured this so perfectly. Great use of "Rule of thirds".

I hope this is ok...I just kinda wanted to say "wow"...of course that would be a thoughtless comment so I am writing my inner dialogue...hmmm I'm hungry...
no really "wow"...and "cool"...

This is an amazing photo. I gave it an 8 and in looking at it further wish I'd scored it even higher. First, it's an amazing capture. But amazing captures are often difficult to turn into amazing photos. Yet you succeeded brilliantly. The mist, the sun and the birds all come together for a beautiful, almost ethereal combination. This most assuredly does not suck. Congratulations on your score, but mostly on such an outstanding photo for your portfolio.

Extraordinarily nice. In a different challenge this could have ribboned. Off to my faves :-)

Yowsa. Wow. Holy cow. And then some! What in incredible image. I'm pretty sure since you have ties with the founder, this won't get you kicked off of Team Suck, but... Very, very nice work, from the shooting to the post. And incredibly cooperative birds, too.

Congratulations. It is a nicely understated image, elegantly composed. Memorable and a nice addition to any portfolio. Happy Holidays.

Oh I was sooooo hoping this one would be a ribbon winner. As much in total awe as I was of so many photos in this challenge -- this one was still my favorite of them all! There's something about the perfect synchronization of those wings and their extended necks -- and of course the moon. This photo is one of my favorites of all my favorites! Mega congratulations on a flawless, stunning photo!

Ohmygoodness! I have to say, I am blown away by the phenomenal photos in this challenge. I've given out more 10's than I think I ever have. But when this one popped up on my screen. . .it grabbed me the most of any I've seen so far. It's so simple. . . yet so incredibly dramatic and well done. The composition. The moon. The synchronized wings in flight and flawless detail of those birds make this my #1 favorite in this challenge! In fact, its the only one I've actually picked as a favorite so far! I wish I could give it a 20 to differentiate it from all the other 10's I've given. But 10 will have to do :)
