Judges Comment

An evocative and well-composed scene as the silhouetted bird calls towards the setting sun.

Photographers Comment

I took this photo In the west of Iceland near thingvellir national park. A local told me the species of bird but I could not pronounce the Icelandic well enough to be able to record it. Taken with a Panasonic Lumix TZ20. I think it proves that compact cameras have the ability to take top quality photographs if used in the correct way.
