Challenge: Best of 2010 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Nikon D5000
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6G
Location: Cape May Point
Date: Sep 11, 2010
Aperture: 13
ISO: 320
Shutter: 1/100
Date Uploaded: Feb 7, 2011

This was DQ'd because I did not have the original right from the camera. Since this was a Best of Challenge, this picture was long gone from my SD Card. For those who questioned, the photo had an almost white sky because of an overcast day. Turning it white was easily done with desaturation. A few limbs were cloned to simplify the image and a poster edge filter was added at the end. Nothing against the rules was done.

You must retain your original, unedited file (exactly as recorded by your camera), and provide it to the Site Council along with a list of your editing steps within 48 hours of any validation request. Files that have been saved or altered with any editing or transfer software are NOT originals.

Excellent capture - Is this what we call a Goldcrest here in the UK?

Looks like an illustration from an old ornithology text.

I love the high key look of this and the tinges of green and yellow. Excellent photo!! The frame is nice too.

Great detail on the tree bark. A little softer on the bird's breast feathers. Trying to figure out why this shot looks as if it has had the BG masked out. Unusual pure white BG.

Oh this is darling. I think I'd get rid of all of the borders, to make the whole image larger. Adorable bird. Love the high contrast.

I like the image and the processing. The border takes up too much of the 800 pixels that you have to work with. For me it would have been fine with a single black line as the border. Still a 7

I love the comp and detail. Going with the benefit of the doubt and hope that you didn't remove the background. WAY cool if you shot it this way!

I love the colors and the composition of this shot. The greens, yellows and browns of the tree and bird really pops off the plan white backdrop - makes me think of the first blush of spring. Love how you composed/captured the shot with the bird centered in the natural triangle shaped frame that is the branches of this tree. Also great capture that you caught this bird with a seed/food in it's beak - nice bit of added visual interest. My only critique is that the frame of the image is so big that it engulfs the image - I think the image is strong enough to stand out on it's own with little to no border.
