Thank you, Dan, Leanne, and Sharon!

You don't think the other cranes in the shot are too distracting? I was trying to darken or clone them out, but couldn't quite get it to look right late last night....

Thank you, Debbie! As a biologist, I love the wild feel to this shot. Unfortunately, the judges don't like competing elements in the background.... I'm just trying to figure out a way to make it more "artistically" pleasing.

I, too, like the wildness, though.
