Good capture but the bird is obscured by the tree and the colors are washed out.

Out of focus - maybe you just enlarged it beyond the ability of your lens/sensor combination. A bit overexposed.

Nice shot, image quality is too poor, 5.

Unfortunately the highlights are blown out and the focus is too soft. Next time try setting the exposure down 1/3 step when you are photographing a white bird.

A good shot for the challenge. It looks like you stretched your equipment to the limit.

Nice capture. A bit overblown and hazy-looking.

Soft. Very distracting branches, lack of contrast, blown highlights.

Still, a very cool shot, I just would have tried to move to a different vantage point, although, admittedly that might not have helped any!
