Greetings from the Critique Club! :)

I didn't vote in the Beatles challenge, but I did browse through the thumbnais just to peek...and this is one of the few images I opened up to appreciate in full size. I LOVE it. The DOF you've chosen to use is perfect, and the focus on the bird is spot on. I love the blends of colors, the mood, and the overall feel of this shot. As far as the challenge goes, you couldn't get much better than this for an entry. My hat is off to you!! :)

Keep shooting, and let me know if you have any questions.

Take care,
Laurie

Wow, such clarity and sharpness on a bird in flight! From experience I know how difficult this can be to capture.

Nice shot. In a perfect world I'd like the bird to be flying toward the camera instead of way, but I still like it.

I think the title "Free as a Bird" would have been better. This is the best one that fit "free" that I've seen so far.
