I wish I had had more time to just snap photos of this scene. Birds are so unpredictable, as are humans.

I chose this one because of the father's outreached hand. Sacrificial, giving, open and vulnerable, hopeful. Transcendential.

Great clarity, focus etc.
I'll have to come to S. Africa one day and perhaps get one of those lenses! I'm jealous

Good capture, and appropriate title. The colors seems just a hair off and the contrast just a touch low, but overall I like it!

I really like the perspective. Nice family photo. I think it could be a little brighter and maybe some noise reduction.

Just a little too busy for my taste but it looks like you all had great fun. That's all that matters in the end.

Very nice shot! I love it. The only thing I would have done differently, is clone out the little pieces of wing in the sky on the left and right sides and maybe cropped or cloned out the bird on the very top.

A nice moment captured and fitting of the challenge, IMHO. I really would have liked to have seen a level horizon.
