This is my first photo in this contest. I was on a Master Naturalist field trip to the saltwater marshes this morning and noticed this small egret next to the small tree. I remember seeing another photo on this site that was shot in tungsten wb, so I tried the shot. The only alterations were to crop and apply soft filter. Thanks, Craig

Lovely photo, but I can't understand why it is in the Red challenge. I wish it were in Free Study so I could give it the high score I think deserves.
03/13/2007 03:37:44 PM
I like the photo very much but how does it apply to the challenge?
03/13/2007 12:08:36 PM
Very nice nature portrait, and I give you "snaps" for choosing a courageous new path in the RED II challenge...dnmc.
03/13/2007 10:53:13 AM
Not red at all. Would be nice entry for blue
03/12/2007 10:13:32 PM
I don't see how his meets the challenge.
03/11/2007 08:13:13 PM
Red? even his invisible feet are yellow! nice photo though.
03/11/2007 04:37:36 PM
Wow, this is a great picture but not a spot of red that I can see.
03/11/2007 03:08:11 PM
Maybe I'm color blind - but I can't see any red here... DNMC
(nice picture though - shouldn't have entered this challenge)
03/11/2007 01:54:48 PM
blue is the contrary to red and red is the challenge title... that's fine, :-)
03/11/2007 12:58:24 PM
03/11/2007 12:20:23 PM
Nice picture, wrong Challenge...
03/11/2007 11:08:35 AM
I don't see any red.
03/11/2007 09:14:40 AM
delightful shot . . . but red?? Maybe that's what the bird likes to be known as. lol.
03/11/2007 03:36:35 AM
this is very pretty but I don't see any red. maybe my monitor is not picking it up. is it his beak?
03/11/2007 01:34:17 AM
Red? Stunning photo... but no red....
03/11/2007 12:30:58 AM
I know there's some red in here. Hmmmm.... Lemme look again.....
03/10/2007 10:55:01 AM

This is such a beautiful image! I love the reflection and color/tone. Sadly it has nothing to do with the challenge topic! Straight up shot I'd give this at least a 8 or 9. Since it DNMC IMHO I'm passing and not voting. Feel free to PM me if you feel I'm missing the challenge connection and I will revisit your shot for voting.
03/09/2007 06:22:22 PM
no red
03/09/2007 05:49:06 PM
03/09/2007 05:39:27 PM
Absence of red?? Missed the concept.
03/09/2007 09:19:26 AM
very nice shot! But I missed some red!
03/09/2007 09:19:19 AM
Nice but it is not red
03/09/2007 06:19:39 AM
Like the composition of this shot a lot but the clarity and colours are well off IMO, sorry if this was your desired effect but it dose not work for me.=
03/09/2007 05:37:56 AM
Cant seem to find red
03/09/2007 03:24:56 AM
no red! otherwise nice

A magical image. But show us the Reds ;)
03/08/2007 03:49:21 PM
beautiful photo, but where's the red?
03/08/2007 03:39:29 PM
lovley shot but dnmc
03/08/2007 03:37:16 PM
Did you put this in the challenge by mistake? It's a beautiful image but not suitable for a "Red" challenge. I'll give you the highest vote I can for a photo that doesn't meet the challenge. Good luck.
03/08/2007 12:42:54 PM
very nice picture. great use of reflection. like the vignette. BUT - as I'm sure you've already heard already: where's the red?
03/08/2007 12:33:02 PM
I think this was entered in the wrong challenge.
03/08/2007 11:49:37 AM
03/08/2007 11:17:09 AM
Nice photo but it doesn't say red to me. DMNC

Nice, wrong challenge but nice. Shoulda entered it in free study :) 6 for the great image. J
03/08/2007 07:26:06 AM
Where is the red? It is a beautiful photo, but IMO, DNMC..
03/08/2007 06:46:24 AM
i feel that this doesnt meet the challenge, good luck! :o)
03/08/2007 03:43:12 AM
Wrong challenge eh? (Or am I missing something really creative?)
03/08/2007 02:37:03 AM

03/07/2007 11:33:06 PM
Love this composition. Lovely cool blue effect. Don't know what this has to do with red....

03/07/2007 04:02:30 PM

03/07/2007 03:56:48 PM

Great picture - love the vignetting effect - could be a little brighter so the Egret stands out more, but where's the red?
03/07/2007 11:15:59 AM

03/07/2007 08:50:58 AM
Nice presentation but.... where is the reddddddd?...
03/07/2007 06:07:22 AM
Wrong challenge?
My vote would be 6-7 in the right challenge, very nice composition but a little more focus will be needed to achieve a higher score.
03/07/2007 05:04:46 AM
great image, wrong challenge
03/07/2007 03:43:08 AM
Is there something I'm not getting here? Where's the red???? play on words?

That being said... I like the photo and the soft focus.
03/07/2007 03:16:30 AM
Very nice, lacking in red...
03/07/2007 02:02:58 AM
03/07/2007 01:13:17 AM

03/07/2007 12:38:31 AM
Very gorgeous photo, but I don't see how it fits into this challenge...
