Man, how do you pull off these shots hand-held? 100mm with no flash; I really don't detect any shake. You camera must have one fantastic image-stabilization system, or you must be built of stone. Great work!

Although the color is fantastic, the framing and the angle of the shot make this a very dramatic picture. Excellent work!

Wild shot -- great colors (just went through the pictures for the last time and upped this to a 10 - one of my ribbon picks)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/06/2004 04:36:02 PM
Marvelous work. To get rid of the slight haze, try an unsharp mask at a high threshold, a high pixel radius, and a low percentage. Super point of view and framing. 9

Absolutely superb... I haven't gone through all the photos yet, but I can't image I'll find one I like more than this. Wonderful colours and saturation, very imaginative composition, great clarity. I love the blue eyes.
Edit: Yep, my favourite this challenge. 10

fantastic color! excellent crop and a great shot overall.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/01/2004 12:54:22 AM
perfect detail, composition, exposure....The DOF is good, but the background might have been a bit brighter as its color and shade do not accentuate the birds iamge at all. Otherwise great shot!
