If there are anymore opinions out there I would love some help! I got one more day until the competition deadline.

I am going to enter into my first photo competition in a few days. I was wondering what all of your opinions were on my choices. I can enter up to three images, so most likely the top three will be entered.

Thanks for helping me decide! (I do have favorites but I am not going to say so there is no bias.)

Take this with a grain of salt, but I am entraced by photo #1. I find it just stunning. I don't know if this is a common shot with bird photography as this is the first time I have ever actually looked at a photo, but I pick that as my favorite.

#4 #5 and #1. Number 4 is the best of them all IMO. It is gorgeous.

#6: is technically flawed (hot spots, one eye in the dark)
#7: Too shallow DOF

Just my opinion of course :)

4 and then 1 for me... fine work.

If entering 4 if allowed by contest rules, I would add canvas behind the birds. the forward birds tail is a bit tight to side of the frame....

Good luck in your contest!!!

Great shooting! Love #1 - it's like one of those "guess how many jellybeans in the jar" contests :)
