    Congrats on your 3rd, well done :)
As for the blur - in the background is ok, looks natural indeed. I think you only need to make the foreground sharp, at least the reflections, and would look even better :)

    Wow. Never expected to be in top ten with this shot.... especially with the overdone pp blur that several of you mentioned, and with some great shots
Thanks for the comments and the votes.

    Congratulations on a great finish. I've never been able to figure out why they want to balance on one leg so much.

    Interesting idea, well-executed, but the regularity of the pattern doesn't quite work for me.

    Love the use of the reflections to give balance. Nice job of framing too. In my favs.

    The birds are beautifully photographed, great colors and very sharp. I like the symmetry too. There is something unnatural about their surrounding, everything else seem so blurry that birds almost look pasted in. Especially where their legs meet water.

    Nice find for the theme, like the variety that the 1st bird gives. Nice colors too. I think you have blurred the foreground a bit too much for my taste, would have worked well without so much blur. But great job anyway :)

    Interesting trio. Nice color and contrast. The reflection adds symmetry.

    NEAT - most definitely real! Maybe what you're sensing is poorly-executed pp.
I had to recover some blown highlights, and felt i needed to blur and darken the background for subject isolation. Possibly went a bit too far which makes them look a bit plastic.

    Cute but are the real?? They look fake, but I see the same birds in the other challenge so maybe they are.
