I love this shot! I'm in my "shadow" phase, and I love the shadow. I also love how crisp the head is in this shot. I'd be tempted to crop it down just a little from the top to get rid of the tip of the right wing. It makes it look like an accident. I think if is was cropped just a tad lower, it would look more like a statement.

Excellent shot! Highly enjoyable. :D (not voting, just looking :)

And the winner of the tenth bluebird:

I would have preferred if the bird and shadow weren't cropped off the edge....

Very nice framing of your subject. The shadow adds a nice affect!

I like the shadow effect, but framing could have been better IMHO. I don't care for clipped wings.

At first the cropping bothered me. Then, appreciating the beautiful shadow and just enough face to appreciate the carry out, I decided I love it. Nice shot. Placement of the hazy border between sand is sea is great too.

What I love about this image are the shadow and the beautifully blurred background. Well done! 7
