All creatures... winner

The winner for this week's Reader SunShots series "All Creatures..." is Kevin Moore for his picture titled "Ticked-off Cardinal," above. The photographer took the picture last winter with a Canon EOS 50D. Here is a critique by Baltimore Sun senior photo editor Jerry Jackson:"Moore's photo could have easily been a contender for next week's category, 'Seeing Red,' with a double meaning as this cardinal looks like one angry bird. I love the humor of this photo. The focus is tack sharp and the photographer did a great job exposing for the bird and letting the background go white. Most cameras would tend to turn this into a silhouette."Photo by Kevin Moore
