Post Challenge:

I really liked this photo. I had hoped it would do a little better, but it is what it is. On my calibrated monitor at home it looks great and the whites are perfect. On this monitor at work it looks a little washed out, but some of the other ones it looks fine. I'd be interested to see how it looks for others.

Doesn't look blown on my monitor (and mine is calibrated). I love that he's looking right at us and the bokeh is great. I get several of these guys at my feeders and I think they're adorable :-) And this is a very nice shot of one.

I think the depth of color and contrast are just right! I'm looking at it on a laptop screen so it may not be the most accurate but, then again, this is the computer I have and what I use to do my editing. :) May explain my lower scores though! LOL

Actually quite a lovely and beautifully done shot! Love it!

Many people probably mistook this for a blue jay in the thumb view, and passed over it in voting. There are a couple of spots, the cheek and the one wing coverlet where the white is almost washed out as you mentioned in your comment. I am not sure how the color saturation is supposed to look on the bird, as I don't think that I have ever seen one in the wild. The bokeh is very nice, and focus/detail is also spot on.
