This was so severely underrated -- I still don't understand it. It's a spectacular image, full of movement and emotion. I gave it an 8, and I should have given it something higher!

Oh. Don found it.

ETA: Meaning that this struck me immediately, and then I noticed Don had given you the blue. Let me add that I would not have expected such brio and even grace from the robins, wing and tail feathers so eloquent for an almost invisible instant.

Well, this was my only 10 in the challenge. Well done, although I must admit the tight vertical ratio is not conventionally pleasing.

Love the capture, meets the challenge well. I don't like the border, although I'm sure you needed it to crop busy branches, etc. Anyway this is my pick for the Blue. 10

too blurry

Superb, pity it's so thin. I wander if the crop was really necessary, advanced editing would probably help (?).

I love this one, it's a beautiful photo and the bw treatment works really well with it and the blurry wings are just gorgeous and the lines and the shapes just work.

I really like this, there's a good sense of movement. Not sure about the black borders though.
