This was one of 2 images to which I gave a 8. Really like the way the shadow falls across in stripes.

Beautiful closeup. Love the eye area, so clear and sharp. The light is also very nice. Background is perfectly soft. Very well done.

Great detail. Don't care a lot for the shadows. If the brightest light had fallen square on the eye it would be a little more striking. Good shot, anyway.

Amazing light and shadow. Especially light through the eye. Well done.

Note that when i start my comments with an "oooooo" that's usually a very good thing.

This is just perfect. Detail is just right, no oversharpening as i'm seeing in many entries. Just right. The beak could be just a tad sharper but i know that frustration with birds, its either the eyes or the beak. This deserves a 9 from me.
