Aw, I think this one deserved to do better than it did. And perhaps in a different challenge, one not focused on birds, it would have. For what it's worth, I like this shot.

Very very complex photo. Yes the bird is in there, though the scene, in its entirety, is the focus. Good job turning it b&w to further diminish the complexity, however, the landscape is very uninteresting. Try to have the landscape speak throught the photo and tell a story with it.

I see it, just barley. it really takes up too little importance in the shot. This is really a landscape that happens to have a bird.

The bird is really hard to find with all the reflections of the trees. The reflections are neat though.

He/she is too subtle for me for this Challenge - I want to be hit over the head with the bird.

The bird is quite difficult to find amongst the cluttered foreground and background.

Wow I almost missed the bird with all of the lines in the image. I really like that I had to stop and look.
