The Price of Spotless Apples       ©2016 Jade O.
Lge Nexus 5       10th place, 76 points
1/120s, f2.4, ISO 377, ?, ?, ?, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Added sign as a layer to size it right but otherwise SOOC.       Extra Info: Hey farmer farmer
Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
'Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Joni Mitchell - Big Yellow Taxi Lyrics

    My #2. Despite the unpleasant message, it was a great photo.

    Thanks, Jomari, but I'm not disappointed. I expected some would turn away from dead birds and some would see a disconnect with a sign that had the "P" more prominent in your mind that in your visual.

mrsawyer I heard the impact. See my note below. I admired this brilliant male for months. I was truly sorry to see this ending.

    Congratulations on a top ten finish, but I was surprised it didn't finish higher. It was my number 2.

Now, just how did you happen to come upon this subject???

    A well composed and presented image with a strong message. High in my favourites.

    The detail here is amazing, and the message is crystal clear. You really have to wonder what we've done to ourselves and our planet. Great colour. High in my faves.

    The bird here flew into a reflection of open sky in a plate glass window. Large office towers kill tens of thousands of migratory songbirds annually. Turning off lighting on the towers at night would make a marked difference but attitudes take forever to change.

    Were any birds killed during this photoshoot?

    Well-shot, very dramatic. Might have cropped a little off the bottom. I do hope no birds were injured in the making of this photo (i.e., that this one was found somewhere).

    A striking image and message, well done. On a critical note, the red from the bottle in the bottom left is a bit too much, it distracts from the subject. Poor little bird.
