Quite perfect... having gone through your portfolio in more detail, this is very evocative of what you do. Guttural.

This has such a dark ethereal feeling...creepy and awesome.

Breathtaking capture - one of my instant tens. And seriously, I'm going to have to convince you to tell me how you do b&w conversions - do you have a price? :)

Agree with Marigold, this beautiful image should have placed a lot higher.

Absolutely stunning stuff - a top 5 image in my book - but really really hard to win with an image that requires the voter to actually look at the image! I was one of your 9s.

It's pretty obvious that those that happened to stop for more than 5 seconds (commenters) really thought is was fantastic (8.7 compared to the overall score of 6.5)

This shot has something that shouldn't have put it in 59th place. I hope you know that. :)

The detail and texture is totally unreal...so is the b&w conversion. Something a little bit ominous about this photo. Well done!

excellent detail on this low key image

Oh my!!! This is so amazingly artful. Dramatic. A million other superlatives are just under the surface too! What wonderful detail in the darks and lights. I love the close composition and the detail in the feathers! What a great entry you have here! Congratulations!

WOW - this is just outstanding. GREAT TITLE. What a stunning image. J'adore l'oiseau et la claire dans les yeux. (Mon Francais ne pas bien. J'ai oubli beaucoup de ma grammere et vocabulaire.) Bon Chance!! 10

Interesting choice for a BW! Somehow it works, although I'd like to see more local contrasts to bring out the details.
