I gave this one a 10, I thought the movement you captured was beautiful.

Hi Jason,

I've not participated much lately at DPC and I'm sorry I didn't vote in this challenge. I picked your photo as my Blue Ribbon. I thought most of the other entries were 'snap-shot-ish' and too much 'in the box'. You took advantage of the 'Expert' edit to create something different AND your subjects of the photo made a person have to use that...ummm...what do you call it? Oh, Brain! Hmmm...no wonder...people need to look past the obvious - something painfully difficult I think these days. Anyway - great work. I really like it. The focus is excellent and the title is trophy!

I dig the wild processing.

Beautiful pic; should have saved it for the free study though. Too much of a shoehorn here.

The post processing is really soft for me. I like the action portrayed but the image feels like it has lost a little of it's 3D depth. -BB

Nice capture but not so much about games...

DNMC. Sorry. It also looks very tonemapped :-(

While it looks over processed, the sky where it meets the birds. Still an amazing image. Should be in National Geographic.

I am going for the skinny one.

There is something weired in the sky (maybe the result of the HDR process?). I feel enhancing the white might have worked better for me.

Does not say 'Games' to me!

Still, a very good pic, well composed and with plenty of detail to look at.

It does feel slightly overprocessed for my liking though...

This certainly would have been one of the best had the processing not gone awry. Looks like some of the color correction got away from you. Regardless, still a fantastic shot. 6

This is very pretty, but I'm sure everyone is telling you what I will say: it has nothing to do with the challenge topic.

Seems like a bit of a stretch for the topic, but I love the shot! My only complaint would be some saturation funkiness happening down on the branch and feet. Good luck!

Think you're going to get some DNMC assertions here, it is a bit of a stretch, but a nice image nonetheless

Beautiful shot! It's maybe a shoehorn, but still I expect this to score well since I do get your point on the title.

Really big stretch on this one. I'm not sold on how it fits the challenge. Sorry.
