Hmm, I am curious how much the blown highlights are going to hurt my score.
I purposefully photographed it like this because I wanted to keep the detail in the eyes and feathers despite being backlit.
I like it because of the way the bird seems to glow. Nevertheless, it could really hurt my score.

I also had to flip the image in order to create an actual S line. I like the natural way better, but some people believed a backwards S to be DNMC and I don't want to take that chance.
