Default Bird Photography Competition (limited)

check this thread for preliminary info: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ol...-together.html

surprise your honey with a trip to mexico!

if your interested, the first ten people to post below wanting to enter the competition will be the contestants. rules have yet to be written in stone, dates to be established. judging will be by vote of moderators, if any are around. if the mods decline to judge, we'll find somebody from the smithsonian.

two spots already taken, so hurry

oh, i'm a contestant, but dont have any pull with the judges, whoever they may be. just a friendly exercise in a challenging format. we all might learn something.

just have a good time and... shoot the bird!

Hi Steven,

Well, if sheer size means anything, I'd say if the competition had started, you'd be in the lead !!
Those forboding eyes Yikes

BTW, by posting, I would consider this your way of accepting the challenge.

Default ....I'm kinda interested


ok....... I may see a bird and try making a picture of it so I am taking a seat.

Question !!! Must the picture be of a real live bird or can one of them stuffed ones like at Cracker Barrel be modeled? We've got some pretty good ones of those at some of the barbeque places 'round here too.

Just asking in case Autumn doesn't bring home a live one.

6 more contestants needed - hurry, slots are filling fast!
once we have 10, rules will be finalized, time period established and the actual contest thread started.

hows that sound - any more suggestions?
