I like the white and composition. The nearly square frame works well. Looks like your crop is a bit much though, lots of grain is showing through. Still I like the White on white and the eye and bill really show through in this kind of image.

These guys look very much like Arctic Ground Squirrels, here in Alaska (same genus in fact). Your image is very well exposed, and the posture is great. I think this may have worked better as a vertical, he seems a little cramped in the horizontal composition.

Interesting that they were described as usually silent, from my experience on the breeding grounds they are noisy little buggers. Great image. Nice pose, and the somewhat gruesome prey item, reminds us that this is a predator, not a songbird. You might consider cropping off some of the headroom, by as much as a third. Nice shot!

Wow, I love the Himalayas. Wish I could spend some more time there. This looks like a remarkable place. The image has a touch of haze to it which you might be able to pull out a bit in Photoshop. But I'd love to see some images from here in early morning or late evening light! You might consider cropping it to panoramic format with just the big mountains and a touch of the foreground peaks visible.

Good portrait and exposure in low light. It is a bit soft, but you caught a nice expression.

I really like the pose and composition here. The yellow light frames the bird nicely and the color echoes off the yellow on the bird's breast. Perhaps some fill-flash would have opened up the bird a bit?

Pablo,
Nice shot. I like the warm, directional light on the grasses. The two slanting hills provide a focus on the stand of trees. I wish for a stronger foreground element, something to set the stage and lead the viewer's eye into the image.

This is a great first attempt at this difficult type of photography. You maintained great sharpness in the head, despite the tangled background. The main problem with the image is your exposure (and I'm not sure in this light it would have been possible to get it right). The nape of the neck is burnt out. In the right light this would have been near perfect. Nice work!

Wow, lucky you. I saw one of these guys a few years back scamper across a road in front of me, but that's the only one I've ever seen. Though the image itself leaves a bit to be desired in terms of perspective and lighting, the rarity of the animal makes this an exceptional image. Congratulations!

Beautiful image and very well exposed for such a diverse array of shadows and sunlight. I do find the white square in the lake somewhat distracting, might be worth cloning out if your ethics allow! Its been a long time since I've been to Glacier, makes me want to go back.
