Bit of a cop out...but I actually really like that song!

This is a Kestral, quite rare in the UK now. This one wasnt free, but rescued.

Gorgeous picture of a bird. However, it doesn't really give me the feeling of "freedom".

0-2 Technical Merit = 2
0-4 Interest/Creativity = 3
0-2 The "wow factor" = 1
Final score: 8

There's a suspicion provoked here - partly because of the nature of DPC - that it's highly unlikely that this bird is free. I'm not sure there isn't a certain sense of despair imparted by that face, anyway, which makes for an intriguing debate about real or imagined expressions in animals. Perhaps, a real expression of freedom would entail the inclusion of some kind of environment for the creature?

Very amazing sharpness combined with the perfect amount of DOF. Spot on exposure and great composition. Most excellent photo!

NOTE.... I'm looking at the image first and tyrying to guess the title. If I can't guess, I can't give high marks :-(

were it flying, it'd look freeer
