Not exactly a shabby score for FS... Amazing capture. You have great contrast, depth and sharpness. However this all makes birdy's head blend in with his wing. Maybe a little softening on the far wing would help - a post hoc dof adjustment of sorts. As others mentioned, the light blue-gray background might have been an issue. Perhaps opting for all sepia and then torquing up the golds and whites might have warmed things up a little, although it would make it less clinically accurate.

I liked it and gave it a 7. Free studies are hard but I did expect this to be in the top 20

Oh lookie. Another bird from Wendy. : )

Honestly, I like it, but I can see how others may have voted it down. I think the plain blue/gray background might hurt.

BiF photography is incredibly difficult and technical. Yes you can hold the shutter down and fire away but in most cases this rarely even gets one good shot. I'm surprised it didn't do better. No wait, it's not a DPC landscape! :) Keep up the great work.

Magnificent BiF image. Is it cropped? If so a little tight on the right. Sky is close to OE. Still a worthy contender for Top 10. 9
