Natural Instinct - a parent feeding a child       ©2013 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       10th place, 115 points
1/100s, f4.5, ISO 200, 490mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Selective lightening, sharpening, cloned out twigs and leaves in the water, cropped.       Extra Info: Living in a big city, virtually everything is influenced by mankind - the flowers in my garden, the parakeets in the park, the river running through artificial embankments. I wanted to try and show an action that was universal, that was in itself natural.

Sadly the parent coot refused to show the food to the camera more than this, and I missed the actual feeding shot.

    Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I'll try a couple of tighter crops as suggested.

    Nice shot. I think a tighter crop would have helped and definitely need more eye detail. I think you did very well with such untrained models :-)

    Nice interaction and expression in their posture and faces. I'd like about an inch off the bottom though. Still, it's a favorite.

    A beautiful picture, in my TT. Maybe a tighter crop would have been better, leaving the trunk of the mother bird mostly off.

    Tough to get the moment but getting it is what separates good and great. Keep wondering if you could have gone level with the water.

    It's so beautiful to see something like this, especially in the hustle and bustle of city life. Great shot!
