I've never managed to achieve such marked detail on a crow (being so nearly black)!
I am impressed indeed!

Nice panning. A shame the background is so messy, but the bird pops out at the viewer nicely.

Great capture but a bit over-sharpened.

Nice composition. Did you try a slightly tighter crop? Good focus. Looks a little oversharpened - not too keen on the bright outlines of some parts.

I like sense of motion with this photo. It seems a good number of photos freezed their birds in place but you didn't and it worked out really well. Nice focus on the crow itself. Nice work, good luck in the challenge.

Nice catch and has a good sense of motion. Looks oversharpened, though, since there's quite a strong light halo around the bird.

Nice focus on the raven, the tip of the right wing looks a bit oversharpened though. It would also have been cool to see the head of the raven.

Very good capture. Focus on the crow is VERY good. Framing seems O.K., but a landscape view with a tad more space to the left might have been a touch better. 10 Rob the Swash

I like the colours. Oversharpened I think.

Nice capture though perhaps a little oversharpened. As with a number of shots in this challenge, I think it is always preferable to see the bird's face if possible. I know it's to always easy to capture a bird flying towards you but I think this one of the things that could be improved. The clumps of seaweed detract as well. I have given you a five because, despite some compostional problems, I think that you are not far off a good shot here. If you would like to discuss this shot further after the challenge let me know.
Good Luck, Todd. 5

Good capture, the perspective is very good. It seems as if you are flying above the bird. I like the panning effect on the background too.

A little too much usm? If it was that soft, you should have reshot it.

I personally don't care for the blurriness and debree on the bottom of the photo, otherwise nice shot.

Good moving camera capture in this image. One of the few in the challenge. A touch too much sharpen or unsharp mask applied, but is a superior capture and is framed well.

I guess the light failed you here....too bad because the action is very nice....still the bird is over sharpened a bit.

I am wishing to see at least a little of the birds face. But not easy captures these birds.

Nice pan! I think the bottom could be cropped off

Beautiful sense of flight. Great vivid image very sharp. Blurring background really gives a sense of speed also. Good shadows in the feathers makes a bold statement.
