Challenge: Peace (Basic Editing)
Collection: Challenge entries
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Location: York, England
Date: Feb 15, 2008
Aperture: f4
ISO: 250
Shutter: 1/1000
Galleries: Animals
Date Uploaded: Feb 19, 2008

Not much processing at all with this one. Brightened a little in DPP RAW conversion, a very small curves adjustment, slight crop, USM, image size and save for web.

this was taken specifically for the challenge, and I was pleased that I retained the translusence in the wing and tail feathers, which was my aim when taking the photo.

This is an absolutely wonderful white on white shot. Had you planned on a white on white shot? You should be very happy with how it turned out. I agree with all your comments and those of the rest of the reviewers.

I would have preferred seeing the bird flying into frame instead of out of frame, but that is a trivial difference. In any event, it is head an shoulders above anything I ever produced.

Congrats on finishing so well! I would think it's rather hard to get white on white to contrast like that - you done good!

Wow, no wonder Team Novice won the TS Blue this week -- what a great score. Oh yes, about the photo -- GREAT representation of peace. You really must share how you captured this white dove against the white background. Congratulations on 4th place.

Congrats on your 4th place finish Sara! I correctly guessed this was yours, but was really hoping you'd ribbon. It was of my faves of the challenge.

Textbook Dove=Peace shot but I mean that in a good way. Excellent well lit shot with the translucent look of the feathers captured beautifully.

Nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Yup no doubt there are some that will say that this is 'too obvious' but hey so what. It meets the challenge perfectly and has been absolutely excellently delivered. Love the high key background which amazingly does not detract from the wonderful sharpness of the dove.

Great composition. Terrific image bumping to 10 and my own personal favourite in the challenge

I think this will take the blue.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Aptly fits the challenge, especially the all white, the light through the wings is nice, but the bird seems a bit soft IMO, hard to make out the details in the head area
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2008 08:42:57 PM
Can't get anything that represents peace more than a dove! Nice comp, some more contrast would work, but that's going to be tough with white on white and basic editing rules.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2008 08:19:54 PM
10 and I hope it does well in the challenge

Nice job of separating the tonal gradations
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/23/2008 04:26:35 PM
this would have been great for the color on color challenge as well. The detail is great here.

Very pretty shot. Clean and I like the whispy feel of the feathers. Back to bump you up to 8.

I like this picture but the background is kind of plain, maybe have a real sky with clouds.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2008 05:10:30 PM
Is this the white dove of peace? Even if it is really a white pigeon, the white color gives it a stronger connection to peace than most of the other bird shots.

02/21/2008 04:55:21 PM
A little too overused and cliched, try something original.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/21/2008 10:05:08 AM

I like this picture a lot but maybe a different background could help
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/20/2008 06:54:53 PM
Wow, that's a very bright picture. you have to blink a lot to really see it.
