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: Triple-check that the focus is razor-sharp after sizing the image to a large size. WildBird's judges want to see a bird's eyes and beak in crystal-clear focus in an 8x10 print.

Bonus tip: Reread the above tip. Roughly 75 percent of entries are blurry.
