Judges Comment

Hummingbird feeder shots can become monotonous: this well-composed and atmospheric sunrise silhouette makes a refreshing change.

Photographers Comment

Thank you so much! My name is Christina Behrends and I've only recently developed a passion for photography, so receiving a mark of excellence out of all these great photos is a true honor for me. I took this photograph in Danville, Kentucky on my mothers horse ranch (special thanks to her for waking me up at 5 am to watch the beautiful sunrise). It was taken with a Nikon D80 and a 55-200mm lens. Post processing included a bit of cropping and thats it!
