Hi Annick,
I see you have a new toy! I have read a lot about the Mk III and noticed that you also were having a few issues with the autofocus. Check out dpreview for in-depth discussion on the causes of this phenomenon.
The photo is top class and it shows great skill on your behalf especially whilst you're still getting used to the new kit. Great composition and sharpness. The colours are natural and you have timed it brilliantly.
Well done
Simon

This is damn good Mircea!
Love the outstanding sharpness and his fighters stance! Great viewpoint, contrast and colours.
Fantastic background to boot. Well done!

Stunning pic Harry!
I also thought this was three exposures in one. The fact that it's not makes it priceless.
The sky is a fantastic blue which sets of the eagles well, you've exposed them well even though they are dark and the sun looks to be bright.
Excellent freezing of the action. Details are good, I wonder though if your sharpening has caused some mild pixelation around the edge of the birds or is this due to compression? Either way it's only a minor point and this is still a mighty fine photo.
I can't wait to finish my teaching course and get out and use the 70-200vr properly!
Regards
Simon

Hello Maite!
Great photo. I love the detail and amazing colours. The pink and the greens go well together.
POV excellent, DOF perfect. Lovely composition.
You've controlled the exposure in bright conditions, well done! :)

Hi Nick,
Had to come and find this!
Very nice shot. I like the POV and nice details you've got. I agree with Niek that there is a slight colour cast and Howard's WS is very good in correcting this. Good job all the same,
Happy shooting.

Tom,
Great capture timing wise and composition nice, however, the shot is underexposed. I have also done a short workshop for you to show you what can be done to improve this where I have tried to also keep the colour true.

Nice work Pankaj,
I think your viewpoint was excellent and technically it's perfect with plenty of detail. Colours are natural and I the light has lent itself well for your position.
My only criticism is the background which although blurred seems to distract me with the two tone look - if you could get it to be all dark it would make the flower and butterfly stand out even more - but this is only a little niggle. ;)
TFS hope you are well

Nice shot Asbed,
You've captured the conditions well and the red of the cardinal stands at fantastically.
A bit more reach would have improved this even more by focusing us more on the subject.

Great shot Alex,
This is sharp and contrasty, lots of detail and has a nice composition.
I like the position of the bird and how well you've exposed those whites.
Smooth background helps isolate the subject.
Great work!
