Definitely reminds me of a Cooper's Hawk venue. They are very sneaky and always looking in the undergrowth. One of my top three.
>I hope this helps.
How much could it help? He already got 1st place ;-)
Your photo is of a Red-shouldered Hawk.
What was the photographer "robbed" of?
Perfect reflection, exposure & detail. I think I'd clone out that little dust spot on the upper edge of the bird's left wing.
This is about as good as it gets for wild bird photography. Congratulations on a high finish. Is that native to your country?
I was pretty sure this would rank highly. Your other entry didn't do badly either. Both did better than mine ;-)

If a photo fits the challenge, I see no issue with entering it multiple times. In fact, my wife gave me a book on photo challenges and one of the suggestions was to keep entering the same photo if it does well. Why do you see this as a problem?

wins the creativity derby.
Congrats on 2nd place.
Thanks kladner. I followed them around for about 10 minutes. Mom, although trusting, kept her eye firmly fixed on me the entire time. It was a funny scene - ten of them walking down the middle of the 7th fairway. All golf was halted for a few minutes ;-)--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
Great idea for the parent!
Looks like others didn't agree, but you image has great color and composition. Very nice light too.
Beautiful color and perfect exposure. Clearly a lot of thought and hard work went into the making of this image. I do have one criticism. I'm pretty sure it needs leveling. The small mesa to the lower right of the sun just doesn't look vertically correct to me.
Regardless, it an easy pick as #1. Great shooting.--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
of getting them both in focus - no easy task. That's a great combination too. Nice shootin!
Beautiful image. The white water compliments the Egret perfectly. Perfect exposure too.
Beautiful shot Ben! Congratulations on another win.--AEHhttp://aehass.zenfolio.com/Question: What do you do all week?Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!
The fact that it is from Pripyat makes it even more so!
That's a face only a mother could love.
Hard to believe 1st & 2nd place photos both involved bicycles - my favorite mode of transportation. However, I don't think I could deal with that sort of weather on a bike.
Congrats! Nice shootin!
