I can not believe this!!! Amazing...at one point I was at 7.16 and with the next 2 votes dropped to 6.89...thought for sure it was the slippery slope down at that point.

@Karen, you asked how I did this....this was done on my back porch with natural lighting (I don't have any lighting equipment at all), on a mirror with a white backdrop.

Thank you one and all!!!

Added Note: I guess I'm continuing with the theme of "Orange" for my Highest Rated Photo's!! Funny thing is this is a feather that I got from the Flamingo on the far right...hmmm

nice high-key shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2011 08:40:48 PM
I really like how it fades away......would love to know how you achieved this in minimal editing. Holding something over the area and then removing it during a long exposure? Very nice.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/26/2011 02:32:57 AM
very cool.. love the color interesting take on light on white :)

Ah, this is dreamy. Beautiful light gradient. Terrific achievement for straight from the camera.

05/22/2011 10:44:43 AM
Lovely feel to this, fine art.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/21/2011 09:53:36 PM
Oh, this is beautiful. I tried doing a feather image but it didn't measure up, so I appreciate this all the more. I love the softness and the gradation.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2011 03:52:15 PM
Nice tone.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2011 11:37:06 AM
This looks like a piece of fine art to me! Very Very Nice!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2011 10:44:41 AM
Wow. Nice shot. just the kind of thing I the challenge was supposed to be (at least in my mind). The softness of light and the subject and texture, line, reflection and the dab of color is perfect. I also like the way you have balanced the white on the edges and corners.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2011 09:04:56 AM
beautiful lines and softness - among my favorites
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/20/2011 06:09:07 AM
great subtle subject and I like the gradual transition to bleached left edge - a great trick to push the focus on the tip of the feather!
