You got robbed! I know that 11th is nothing to sneeze at, but this should have ribboned or at least been in the top 5!!!! As I said before, my favorite of them all and 10's all the way.

Great, Great job!

Fantastic shot. I didn't get to all of the shots in this challenge due to lack of time but this would have received a 9 or 10. I think this is better than the winner.

Eleventh! Aarg, so close. You deserved a star on this shot. It's marvelous. I would never have thought of using selective desat on this photo, because the peacock colors are so wonderful, I'd hate to lose any of them. But this really works. Congratulations.
