I don't think this will ribbon but I needed a big score and I am pleased with this. First vote was a 6 and from there on it soared. It was a magical week in Mozambique and I shot so many pictures and used only 1 for the Free Study. The change of scenery was very good to me. This was one of the last photos I shot with the D90. It picked up moisture somehow, irreparable. I thought of replacing it with the D750 but matters turned worse and I cannot afford any new camera let alone the D750. So I am assigned to my old D80. But we will get it right, I'm sure. One of these days, I will be able to buy either a D7100 or maybe the D750. Meantime I'm re-discovering the D80.
Shot on 4 September my 43rd wedding anniversary. So special

13 comments, thank you, that means more than the score. And thank you voters you restored my soul.

Sien nou eers die foto....absoluut stunning. Jammer om te hoor van jou D90 maar lyk my die D80 doen net sulke goeie werk.

Gits Amanda, wat 'n goeie foto! Ek hou beslis die meeste van die een onder die eerste 20.

Jammer van jou kamera. Spaar maar, en hou die twwedehandse blaaie dop.

Welgedaan Amanda.. op julle 43ste huweliksherdenking. Ek is jammer oor jou kamera maar ek dink Bees moet sorg dat jy n nuwe kamera kry :) Niks fout met die D80 nie maar watter plesiertjies het jy dan nou andersins as die druk van n knoppie... en die tyd saam met Bees.
Soso jy se.. Die plek is n bysaak op die foto maar dit bly n spesial oomblik vasgevang hier en bly dit het goed gedoen. Ek het begin stem op die challenge maar tyd is skaars hier

This is my favourite in this challenge- I just love how it is perfectly balanced between movement and tranquility.

Very nice. One of my top votes. One minor nitpick: I can see a touch of haloing around the man's head and arm, but it is the sort of thing that may not show up on all monitors.

wonderful capture. a little too much haloing, imo. maybe it's just oversharpening.

I want to get caught in a flock of egrets!!! Beautiful, although there's a bit of haloing around the man

I don't think even a movie director could place the birds into their allocated positions to achieve this magnificent composition.

Bumping up to a ten, I've only given two of them.

Wonderful scene and captured well. There is a halo around the person that is a little distracting, but a great capture nonetheless.

Would have liked it to be a bit sharper. It's a bit grainy and there is a halo around the the man, but it's great shot!
