auto layers, saturation, crop, resize in that order. there were tons of birds in the seaport and it seemed like a perfect oppertunity to get a panning picture.

I apologize if you read the earlier comment. A classmate decided to mess around with my account when I stepped away from the computer for a second.

This photo is beautiful!

I'm kinda disappointed that this was not in the top 3 (& I am a bit miffed by some of the comments..."Not sure it exactly follows the challange"....come on...)

Anyway...I really like this image & you should be proud. Top effort

Wow, the head is amazing. I hate to think how many frames you shot just to get this. You could be close to a ribbon with it.

An interesting shot. Not the sort of subject you'd think of for panning due to the wing beat, but it works well.

Nice job on the stop motion/tracking of the head and placement of the subject. Coloration is unfortunate and takes away from the impact the image could have had if the water had been a brilliant blue.

Cool funky capture. It is good that you caught his head in pretty good focus. 7
