[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this shot of these fighting Rooks from the car window whilst out on a jolly down to Dartmoor, well I'm sure that's what they are due to the beak size/colour? They were giving it hammar and tongs at each other, oh us males and our domineering ways....:-)

Great action shot nice detail where it is needed and go colour.
Job well done.

Hi Adrian,
Most interesting content. Excellent sharpness.
Compositionwise I would have cropped the rock above.

What a great action shot. Excellent job with the exposure and focus especially from car window.

Hi Adrian,

Thats a wonderfull action shot you made. Sharpness, POV and BG are OKé. And I'm agree with the critiques from vanderschelden. Cropped the rock. Regards Bob

Hi Adrian,

a fine action shot caught here, pin sharp focus and good exposure kept the details in those black feathers nicely.



Hello Adrian , very good action photo , very crisp and well exposured black tones , TFS and good luck.

Great action shot Ade, deserving of more attention but as you know lifes not fair, and that includes photo sites for sure!

Not much about here in Rhodes at the moment, though I did manage to see a two tailed pasha today, my first! Sadly I never got close enough for a decent shot though!


Hello Adrian! Lucky you to have had your camera at the ready! They are really going at it, and you've done a great capture here! The upper bird looks quite 3 dimensional on my monitor. Marvellous detail, especially difficult with such dark subjects! Well done! Linda
