Oh Mae! This is so beautiful. It reminds me of my wings photo -- only yours is better and set in so much more of a beautiful setting. Goes to show that in any other challenge it would have been a ribbon winner! Congratulations on your wonderful 7 score and 8th place!

Gorgeous pose. Interesting choice in the colortone for the environment. The bird does pop out nicely from the background.

I like the rocks in the bottom of the frame. Love the bird's pose, very silly. Nice 'tone' to the whole thing.

"Good heavens; what's that under my wing?!" LOL! Nice lighting.

Interesting pose! I can't put my finger on why, but I really like the composition of this. It just feels right.

I was looking all over for my cell phone the other day, too. :P
This is really terrific!

Wonderful. The surroundings aren't very pretty; but the bird is. I love how perfectly you have exposed him. It must have been very difficult not to overexpose him. I love how you can see the outlines of the individual wing feathers on the underside of his wing. That's tough to do.

This is a beautiful shot. A small crop at the top (some of the reflections) might even enhance the subject more.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/29/2009 08:42:11 PM
This is really nice. Just a little tighter crop would make this one of the best of the challenge!

Love the pose. Nice capture. I like your management of the white of the bird.

Looks like he's cheating on a math test ;)

Very nice image, and I think the vignetting actually worked on this. Well done.

Amazing shot. Love the pose and the light. I would have cropped the top a little to avoid the distracting background.8

One of the best. Great capture. 10.

I like your edit...I possibly would have cropped out the shore at the top as it demands attention 7
