This bird photo could be better if...

WildBird holds a photo contest each year that generates hundreds of entries. We love seeing so many folks respond to the prizes available in each category, and this year's contest offered 16 prizes.

Among the gobs of great photographs that make the judges' jobs difficult, we always find images that make us think that they could've been just a wee bit better. I'll share some for your viewing and critiquing pleasure. (Click on an image to see a larger version.)

Tip: Turn off the date stamp, or crop the photo to remove the data stamp before submitting it to a contest.

Bonus tip: Ask yourself if your contest entry matches the quality of the photos that regularly appear in the host magazine or on the host website.

Maybe you should have contestants read this first.

"you should have" -- That's funny, John. I can't *make* participants do anything.

The contest details always stress focus as the prime consideration. Most of the entries still appear out of focus.

#26 in that link particularly amused me. Thanks for the chuckles.
