I would have cropped the grass sticks as they distract a little.

I guess it's from ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' vawendy. Excellent timing & focus. I think the colors are not pooping out to my expectation & missing a contrast little bit.

wonderfully timed capture! nicely done and his position in the frame is great!

Nailed it!!! Tough capture with snow and a moving bird. Maybe could take a slight contrast boost but the capture itself really wows me.
