The colouring and simplicity of this image struck me from when you first posted. I think it's a beautiful image.
At first I thought these were prickles on a branch, so how lovely and how cute to look at this full size. Congrat's on 1st
I thought this was such a lovely entry from when you first posted it. The colours and background are beautiful.
Very beautiful and deserving. The background moody sky is perfect.Congrat's on 1st.
Brilliant in every way. What a wonderful sight to have witnessed let alone capture in such detail. Congratulations on 1st.
tbcass: I think the dog is cute and the peacock is beautiful so it's beauty and beauty. ;-)
You"re right! I feel the same so also somewhat fraudulent for suggesting this lovely dog is a beast!
Repsak: Shot by a camera with a 5 megapixel, 0.4 inch sensor, that was manufactured 12 years ago. What does that say about us as we practically chase our own tails, constantly upgrading cameras because of the latest new technology?
Yes but I too have been seduced with upgrading! Jen
Excellent in every way and as usual, don't understand the low votes.
Yes, a real 'wow' image. Would be proud to have taken this shot myself. The gaze draws me right in - doesn't seem hostile or threatening, just looking. Excellent. Jen
Thank you for your comments, one and all. Jen
bed bug: Nice shot - I am surprised to see a FZ20 still working - mine died quite quickly (it was my third digital camera). Or can I assume this a very old image?
Hi bed bug. Ha, the FZ20 did indeed retire some years ago. I only realised the capture date a few hours ago, so obviously my late editing of the image has confused something? I would have corrected this when submitting if I'd noticed but just didn't.
Thank you - she is certainly a beautiful girl.
Yeah, it's a classic caption for the pose!
Oh yes - definitely makes me smile!
Love the geometry here. Think you should have done so much better than 10th. It's a great shot.
Wow, great shot and interesting to hear how you set it up. Don't understand those low votes. Congratulations on 1st.
I loved this shot from when you first posted it and such a clever idea for this challenge. It is way better than 14th place.
Beautifully shot and seems made for B&W. Congratulations.
I really love this shot which to me exemplifies the challenge. Beautifully composed background. I'd love to see this one day.
Really beautiful shot you've taken here.
