Fantastic shot--Inspiration about what can be achieved with fairly basic kit
08/31/2007 09:02:15 PM
well done Mudassar on a personal best image and a ribbon...this is striking and powerful
08/31/2007 03:15:40 PM
This is beautiful. I am especially taken by the slight blurriness of the topmost wing feathers, adding a grace note of suspended motion to this otherwise crystal-sharp image. Lovely PP also.

Congrats on your yellow ribbon, wonderful shot!
08/30/2007 10:13:57 PM
Wow nice shot, the light filtering through the feathers is a really neat effect. Great job!!
08/30/2007 08:41:22 AM

08/29/2007 08:20:27 PM
Flawless. 10. #1 in my book.

Wow, simply beautiful. Much congrats on well deserved victory.
08/29/2007 06:06:32 PM
Very fine backlighting. Love to see the pigeon ennobled; how rarely do we see its fine feathers. Worth 10.
08/29/2007 05:30:59 PM
Beautiful shot! Congrats!
08/29/2007 12:26:49 PM

That's nice. Some blurr in the wings, but those tail feathers are just excellent along with the overall perspective.
08/26/2007 07:57:35 PM
Good capture. The underbody of the bird could be a little lighter in value.
08/26/2007 09:17:54 AM
Presenting this photo in Black & White makes it a winner with me. It shows the luminous transparency of the feathers. Nice composition.
08/24/2007 03:51:57 PM
i like how the tail feathers are translucent
08/24/2007 03:34:55 PM
Love it 10
08/23/2007 01:03:51 PM

good capture
08/23/2007 04:17:22 AM
very cool!! the tones are wonderful.
08/22/2007 11:21:32 AM
Nice image - Love the softness and great use of a shutter speed slow enough to blur the wings - Just wish there was a little more lightness and highlights in the birds wings and body.
08/22/2007 09:13:38 AM
beautiful transparancy of the wings.
08/22/2007 05:36:22 AM
I like the effect on the tail feathers but the body is a little too dark. There's not much you could have done about it I suppose.
08/22/2007 01:41:11 AM
Nicely captured. I like how it's not a flat background, but it has some life to it.
