Love the sense of motion here. Too bad some of the voters didn't "get it".

A tie for the Bronze Bear award from me for this lovingly-rendered, strikingly textured image that captures the somewhat muddy, imprecise nature of a pigeon's flight.

The bird looks great. I would love to see this against a black BG.

I like the motion shown, but the overall feel is pretty harsh.

Interesting capture on the position of the wings. I definitely wanted to stop and look further

Very abstract and interesting. The head is focused quite well which gives this shot much more strength.

The motion blurs seem a little too messy to me, but very beautiful colors.
