Not sure why this didn't do any better. This should have been top three IMO. Great lighting and focus.

Hey there, Nikolai - congrats on your shot and score! When I saw this, I thought "THOSE" are the eyes I wanted to capture. :)

This was your Nikolai?!? I'm cruising through the entries to find out where some of the competition finished. This was one of the shots that really had me concerned. I believed that it was going to edge my entry out and I am very surprised that it didn't finish in the top 5. Fantastic shot!

His expression is what makes this photograph, IMO. He has the look of confusion, or don't care in his eyes. You did a good job balancing color and placing the focus on the birds eyes. One of the best close up picture in the challenge. Good job.

good color, a little light in contrast but not much, nice saturation. And I like the composition.

Nice image. Good detail and his cocked head adds something. The border on the other hand adds nothing. WOnt let if affect my vote though.

Nice, big, bright eyes. Maybe needed a little more DOF to get the rest of the chest in focus, too.
