    Great shot, would make any room proud, the PP makes the bird stand out magnificently while the background is still interesting and beautiful to look at. - congrats!

    Congratulations - sorry I couldn't be part of the vote this time, but I certainly would have picked this as my No 1

    Thanks to all for the nice comments, and to Andrew for thinking up this interesting exercise. I am surprised with the finish here. I guess it is the usual situation where I am the least able to judge my own work. Thanks again.

    Congrats for ending up on top, Bill. You've been in the hunting for a bit and certainly the technical merits of this one made a deserving winner!

    LaRee, I am not sure how to take your comment. Sounds like you picked this as the best of a bad lot, none of which were worth voting for. My own take was that there were many that I liked and thought were well done.

    This is my favorite of the main entries. But alas, I honestly can't pick 5 favorites in this challenge so I won't be casting a vote this go around. This proved to be a very difficult challenge to pull off in my humble opinion. If I was voting this would be my #1 though.

    I'm unsure about the crop but in the end figure you got it about right. A good image.

    Like this a lot. The colour complements the picture in telling the story with extra emphasis. The bird is tack sharp and a glint in the eye. What more can you say? Top shot.
