I would say that some might be thinking there is too much negative space..."the bird at least fairly large in the frame".  That is my rational argument.  Knowing how people are, yes there are probably jerky people.  

I could go on a rant about why anyone cares what the ratings are, but that is likely just my life experience/personality.

Yeah easy fives. Michigan photos are getting bombed really bad. I have some that I would say are 5 stars and probably some of my best ever but I don't want to upload them because they will get bombed fast.

Don't let other people stop you from doing something, unless it involves "jumping" and a "cliff".

ding ding ding ding! That's why all my Michigan photos get bombed, Lol. We've got some oddly competitive people here. 

Competitive can be good when it is friendly, but doesn't surprise me there are the un-friendly kind around here.  I think I have been lucky that my interactions have been with the latter.  Were you birding when the Spotted Redshank showed up near Ann Arbor?  That drama was really crazy.  It was more possessive than competitive.

I would call that a five too. Some parts of the head are overexposed, but other areas have really nice detail and it's a stunning photo.

Sorry guys, but there’s just too much area on the neck with zero detail for it to be a five IMO

I know this is my photo, but does this really deserve a 4 star average? I would like to here others opinions.

Beware because I'm not a photographer, but in my opinion the bird is a bit too far to the bottom of the frame, and the scruffiness of the bird may make some people think that the bird is not as sharp as it is.

Everything about it is a five, except the framing. It’s even that the bird is too low in the shot(that’s debatable), but that thick stick going directly behind the head is distracting to me.
