Review Bombing

Personally, I think this is a five start file. It’s sharp, good background, good exposure, good composition, and lighting is fine. But, it’s rated at a four. It might be from people bombing it or it might be from four star ratings. 
 

So I’m asking, four or five and why?

Four.  Very good but lacks a 'Wow' factor.

Thought I’d finally put this up. This contributor from my area takes some of the best photos I’ve ever seen! Make sure you go to best quality. 😉

Classic California, just casually insert some random mountain in the background of a habitat shot 😂 Sooo good.

Same with you! 

I appreciate it, might be a good shot here and there but it sure isn’t consistent like some people haha. I still tend to upload some crappy photos, trying to get to 5K photos on the library all time by the end of the year and I’m not going to get there with all 5 stars.

Oh, me too! Some of my photos may be decent but…….

This is a supper common bird. Why’d I even take this picture?

@Birding Boythat contributor also has some great videos. I still can’t understand why some people can upload video to Ebird and some can’t…

Yeah, I wish there was some way people besides monetary contributors and reviewers could upload video. I think you might be able to have them upload a video if you send it to them if it’s interesting enough, but don’t quote me on that. Not sure though, the library might be overwhelmed if everyone started uploading vids though.

Here's a photo he took when birding at the same hotspot where I got my Common Raven last December!

That's just not a five start photo.
