I've been sitting here staring at this for five minutes... fabulous image! The tones are unexpected, gorgeous; the layers upon layers of plant life, amazing; the bird posing perfectly in the center of the light, perfection...I love this LOTS!

wow! what a phenomenal image! I wish you'd write some kind of description. I have trouble even imagining how you took this.

I can't believe how cool this photo is! The bright background makes it larger than life as far as initial impact. I just love the composition -- everything about it!

Tied as one of my favorite images in the challenge. I really love the lighting and differnent depths goinn on here. A very dramatized picture. The only thing keeping it back from a perfect score it the hard transition of the bird, it looks oversharpened for this resolution. Still a wonderful photo and highly rated.

elegant framing

Interesting approach. Even though the egret is centered the image is quite dynamic due to the angle of the branch and the stance of the bird. I'm not sure if I like the blown out background but maybe if the bird stood out more the background would fit in better.
