Very nice great show of talent, I see no over saturation here, and I used a 23 inch Apple TFT professionally clibrated Studio monitor.

Hi John:

Awesome shot!! congrats on your top ten finish. Last weekend I sat by our humming bird feeder at the cottage, lens up for about an hour waiting for a shot. I finally gave up as no birds showed up. With camera back in bag, I walked back up to the cottage. Turning around for one final look, guess what was feeding at the trough. :(

Again congrats, great capture

Coley

Congrats on your first ribbon!!!

Well caught!!
A shame that the dropper isn't a flower, as this would realy make this picture extraordinary!!

Good photo. Hard flash shadows bugging me a bit, softbox would have done a lot. Still thinks its a very good shot, 9

I allways like these shots, but it's a pity you used a man made 'flower' for this.. The feather highlights showing in the fill flash are stunning.

I love this - maybe a pure blue background by moving the camera lower or the spout higher would have accented this little guy even more?

Amazing capture! Would have loved to see its tongue out. The bottom wing just blurs to much I feel.

This I consider to be extraordinary because hummingbirds move so quickly. The colours are appealing and the detail in the bird is amazing. Love it. 10

WOW, GEORGEOUS, This is just a beautiful pic. I said I would not say that on pics that I vote high, but this one is just a great capture. If it does not place in the top 10 I will be very very very surprised. I will give my one nitpick, in that the far wing on the bird being blurry, blends into the background of the blurry green stuff making it seem like a funky looking wing, but as I said this is a very minor nitpick.
