I'm thrilled for you to be featured in Shutterbug for this Grand Prize win and your Tamron lens. Finally, the noticed you deserve. This image is pure poetry: the colors and tonality, the composition of the bird and its artistic stance, and the breathtaking lighting all of which you captured. It is pure poetic symmetry..And a grand prize winner!!!
