Challenge: Portrait Of A Wild Bird (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS
Location: Baghdad, Iraq
Date: Dec 24, 2009

The winner of this challenge will be a peacock. The runners up will be of eagles and hawks in zoos.

I hope this doesnt get destroyed by the audience, who likes lots of colors, and instead is appreciated for its simplicity.

Post: Thanks for all your comments. I think this was well-received, but just lacking the WOW (which is ok sometimes).

Super colors in this (or lack thereof). You did a great job bringing out the details in the white, which I always have problems with.

Wow, that's sharp! Maybe a little too much: you got those dark contour lines on the upper edges of the bird.

I love this! The contrast between the bird and the wonderful looking water is superb!

Lovely still water and reflection. Just seems a bit too smooth for my taste but it's a nice entry.
