Oh, I like this very, very much...however, as you've pointed out (I think some people don't read or care about the title)...that bird is unfortunately very, very distracting. Dang...to bad...hey, you know what...in the last 'Free Study' challenge, I know I got dinged because I should have cropped a distracting branch out of my photo. It was advanced editing, I just forgot that it was. You've noticed the 'blemish' in your photo and chose to post it anyway. I still don't think a perfect score is in order but I will certainly give it a 9. Maybe a helpful suggestion would be to always, always take more then one frame? Good luck to you...I hope others aren't to harsh about part of nature. Oh heck, you only live once...I'll make it a 10...there...10.

The unfortunate thing on this site is that you have to mention the bird in the title of the photo (people won't give you the benefit of the doubt). For me the bird is so minor that I would never (or almost never) notice it, but once it is mentioned in the title it becomes distracting. What I'm saying is it shouldn't be in the title.
It is an interesting photo otherwise. I don't often agree with black & white, but I do think it was well used here. Rule of thirds draws your eyes to the woman very well.

Really nice! However, could be better if it was looking a little bit up, and without the bird (or piece of dust) in the air.

Think this would have worked better shot from a slightly different angle. The perspective here is very disturbing to the eye and makes the photo appear off kilter. Good luck.

I really like this shot a lot. I do, however, think it might have faired better with a big chunk of the foreground cropped out. Good Luck!
