    Thank you everyone for your comments. B&W is not my normal process but was happy with this one.

    A great shot which could only be bettered in the voting by something truly special. Congrats on what is really a very good number 2 finish.

    I love this bird study. The tones and light are beautiful. Even though the primary light is from above and behind, there is plenty of reflected light giving detail and a nice catchlight in the eye. This would probably be nice in colour but the monotone works really well.

    You have done a fantastic job of backlighting this photo without losing the detail in the foreground. Excellent capture.

    Excellent monochrome photo. First in my TT. Well composed, good sharpness.

    B&W shots of birds are unusual, and here the light is wonderful and it brings out the detail in the feathers.

    an excellent rendition of a subject where colour helps.
the fine details are brilliant as is the lighting

    Beautifully lit and captured. I would have brightened the eye quite a bit to bring out the detail and add more "life" to the subject. I find the vignette a little overdone...it should be less obvious I think. The only other negative is the background which looks quite flat whereas a bokeh leaf pattern would be more attractive. Overall a beautifully detailed, very sharp, and well lit shot, perfectly composed.

    Beautifully captured! Love the light shining through the Cardinal's crest the seed or nut in its mouth.

    Nice capture of the bird, with good b&w tonal values. The bright area beneath draws my attention away; also wouldn't losing the chain, as it's another distraction.

    The lighting is dramatic. The vignette brings out the bird nicely.

    Almost seems a shame to reduce a colourful bird to black and white, but it does make quite an attractive monochrome shot.
