Beautifully done. The light & detail as well as color is lovely, I like the shadows on the rock in left corner too.

A great shot of this unique bird with a loads of detail, nice color and great lighting too...love the shadows on the rock you captured in this lovely composition. Great eye detail too and I like the camouflaged look to the image..congrats, Rafael!

Well seen and captured. Great detail and exposure in difficult lighting. Congratulations on your POTD!

On first look, I thought this bird could've easily gotten lost in this picture for a couple of reasons but it didn't. All that background detail works, however, and the colours are very complimentary to the subject. What I really like is the light and also the shadows that Robin mentioned. A lot of photographers would not have gotten the excellent results you did, Raf. Excellent work!

The predecessors' comments describe my thoughts very well. So, I will not repeat them, but congratulate you on this wonderful POTD, Rafael! Well seen and taken.

Well seen and composed Rafael!
Rafael Sanchez commented on August 17, 2008 23:38:
Thank you all for the encouraging comments. This is of course a bush sTone-curlew (left out the T in the title) and the only reason I managed the shot was that when endangered they stand stock still giving the photographer a few goes at getting it right.

Beautiful capture Rafael, a very well deserved POTD!

Rafael, you managed to obtain amazing detail of this lovely bird, despite less than ideal lighting conditions! Big congrats on your POTD!!
