    Well done on your 5th place finish - definitely deserved.

    Listen, I think this was one of the best shots and one of the most original. I find it quite special and if I found it on a pro site, would not have thought twice about whether it belonged there.

    I think the framing is spot on here. The patterns in the water are magical. Congrats on your best open finish so far! (Was my #3)

    Beautiful shot - love the way the bird is almost hidden. Reminds me of one of those puzzles that turn int a 3D image if you stare at them for a while :-)

    This photo practically vibrates with colour! It's like looking at one of those pictures that morphs into something else. Nice capture!

    Thanks forkcandie and Jade - I intentionally kept the bird small and lost in the water since water is the theme.

    good capture of a goodlooking wildlife. imo would have cropped tighter and made Grebe bigger well done

    Despite my first impression that the bird was lost in the background, it only took a half second longer to realize you have a unique and wonderful impressionist capture, right down to the sparkle in the eye, my personal pet peeve for those who miss getting that in animal shots.
