While I entered this challenge too, I really thought your entry would win. It is such a great effect and colours. Can't tell what it is. Don't get all the low votes either.
It was a huge mirror ball with coloured lights reflected into it which kept changing colour. All part of a celebration in my city.
This is a fabulous shot and should have done so much better imo.
Beautiful colouring in this.
Chocolates in their wrappers?
I think this is a female Red-bellied Woodpecker?
Just too cute.... and how nicely they have posed. Congrat's on 1st.
I think this is a really lovely image and can't fathom the low votes. Jen
Excellent! Congrat's on 1st.
Wow Joe, this is seriously good and intimidating at the same time. Congrat's.
I love the action and story you've captured here.
Loved this from when you first posted. How lucky you are to have them as backyard visitors.
Very beautiful shot of an unusual bird (to me) showing habit and habitat. How amazing that beak can build such a complicated nest.
This is simply amazing. There is a grace and elegance accentuated by the clouds giving this a romantic, other-worldly look.
Such cute chicks so well captured.
Deserving winner with wonderful detail captured beautifully on the wing. Congrat's on 1st.
Beautiful pair of birds, detail and background.
