I thought this was a cute shot, the dove had just started enjoying the birdseed that was spread on the ground, when the black bird showed up, suddenly the dove puffed up his feathers to looks more menacing to the black bird, the black bird won. :(.

Interesting shot, and composition. I don't see the birds fighting over nothing, they look rather happy and peaceful.
Without the title, it doesn't convey the message of conflict by itself.

I like the idea, but the quality is sub-par. It's blurred, grainy and over-exposed. I don't know if it was just the conditions, but you should get it worked out! Other than that, nice shot!

hey I love your picture its so freakish looking so raw potentially absent of thought and well I love it. Give me more mommy please this stuff rocks. Its like kind of like a cartoon like thing but way better you know. I am giving you a high number for me on the scale 5 your a lucky one. A bad image never looked so good except in your hands.

Unoriginal. Lacks focus. Better luck next time

Quality wise this is horrible, everything just seems off. Composition wise it's not too bad.

This looks like you might have post processed too much.

I like the idea behind this picture, but the picture itself is not a good quality photo. I don't see the birdseed, and the birds, especially the black bird are not sharp and clear. Points for originality only.

rather out of focus and the balance seems off.

The background is a bit too busy.

to me the image looks like resizing for the challenge may have degraded the image quality, its not very sharp and the colors are off some, either that or too much digital zoom was used....
02/25/2004 06:11:15 PM
really grainy

Good use of a photo oppurtunity but you might have blown up the image a little too far.

technically bad - over sharpened or levels adjsuted too mcuh - the green (grass?) is not in focus, just not pretty to look at, hurts my eyes.

This image is very pixelated. You may want to try a noise reduction program or plug-in. A good idea for this challenge though.

Looks like you've lost some picture quality in the resizing. Good subject and composition.

Lacks sharpness and the colortones somehow are distracting. Seems to be very hard lighting and the balance between light and shadows are not good for my opinion.

from the look of it, i dont think the dove needs anymore.
