Greetings from the Critique Club

Awwww, what's not to like about this gorgeous bird image!

And I mean that, sincerely, from one bird person to another.

(er) But, I'm not sure this met the Challenge, and,while I know this is your first Challenge entry, this is a very important qualification. The image is beautiful, it is composed well, it is sharp. But in most of our viewers' estimation, it Did Not Meet The Challenge. Deadly. Because of all the good things going for it, you still received a respectable score.

You're good. Keep up this caliber work, and try to get a bit closer to the Challenge description. You will go far at DPC.

Nice shooting.

A great photo, but not comforting IMO.

Not sure where the comfort is in this image. Not too bad a shot. BG is sort of bright.
03/05/2006 02:07:01 PM
very nice!
03/05/2006 12:00:28 PM
love this
03/04/2006 08:06:09 PM
very nice shot but I don't see how this gives you 'comfort'
03/04/2006 02:36:33 PM
I'm not sure this fits the challenge - he does not give me any comfort, but it's a nice photo.

Lovely image...comfort not sure...

a good shot of a beautiful subject but it looks over-sharpenned to me

This is one of the best bird/wildlife shots I've seen in a long time. The clarity and colours are just superb. The depth of field is awesome, I think that's what makes this so strong. But ... this hawk comforts you?

Not exactly sure how this relates to the challenge.

Very good shot! Stretch in my opinion as to whether or not this fits the Challenge so, I scored 8 and probably would have scored 10.
03/02/2006 01:32:24 PM
Excellent photo, very crisp and clear.
03/01/2006 09:38:35 AM
A nice shot, but does it really qualify for comfort?
03/01/2006 06:48:01 AM
how does this fit the challenge? I mean, it's an amazing shot, but I don't see comfort anywhere
