great action capture with the claws just barely touching the rock. excellent focus good colors and nice DOF

Hi Pawel,
This is an outstanding capture!
The sharpness and focus on the moving subject is remarkable, you had a great timing on that shot.
I like so much all the action displayed on this image, it's so good the landing moment.
DOF works pretty well, the soft and neutral background stands up the subject.
The upward position of the wings is very good and uncommon one.
Besides all that, the illumination was great also.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
