I had this old robins nest and wanted to use it in a photograph. The fish was purchased for 31 cents at a local market. I was planning on submitting this in black and white but liked it better in color. Using Photoshop Elements I modified color, contrast, brightness, and sharpness.

I really like the natural tones of this photo. I like the contrast between the fish and the nest. I wish you the best of luck.~10

One of the best in this group, even if it isn't "people food." A little on the dark side, but it seems to help the mood. I don't really understand the relationship between the nest and the fish- maybe it's just me?

Is that birds nest? Dont think we eat it but together looks interesting. Color of fish is real good. Still would like nest beeing less messy on few corners...would make better compozition. Good luck!

Unique concept. The placement of the fish in the nest is a whacky location, but fish in itself, not so whacky. You have exposed this shot perfectly and the centered composition works nicely. Bump to an 8.

I love this shot :)

I don't know how great it is on theme, but it's just my favorite of all the entries...very clever, and a great composition!!!

Ah I get it, a fish in a nest! Great idea, one of the more creative "makes you think" pictures in this competition (which has been lacking for this one). One of my higher ranked ones, good luck!

This one stands out from the crowd, very JJ-ish. A very elegant choice of elements that pleases the aye. The lighting is just right, composition is simple and fits the subject well.

great concept and appealing image. Not sure whether it is wacky, although in some countries they eat bird nests, that counts for me as wacky. A great image to look at, in my top 3.

Somehow the title doesn't quite fit for me on this. The picture has a quality of elegance that the title lacks. However I would not take points away because of a title. I really like this photo. Love the sepia tone and the great textures. Also really like the composition. Excellent photo.
