Hi Eyal,
Lovely pose you caught here as well as the serious expression of the bird. I like the color tones, neat background and the details. TFS
All the best,

Hello Eyal!
Beautiful capture of flying Falco. I like a lot the moment you kept in this picture. Picture is sharp and has very nice colouration (I like also contrast which is perfect due to the tones of BG and main object).
All I need more in this presentation is any note :)
Greetings from Poland,

Hello Eyal,

You have caught this falcon where it appears to be hovering and focussing with great determination on the ground; a clasic pose of pirds of prey! Well seen!
The blurring around the wings gives a good impression of movement but the head is sharp and focussed.
The bird is well placed in the frame leaving room ahead for its progress.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

This bird "means business" ;) Well caught Falcon intently watching some prey I would guess... getting ready to dive. Composition and detail well done. TFS


this is a really great shot.

Hi Eyal,
Perfect capture of flying bird.Nice colours of bird and background too.
Regards Jiri.

Good shot.
Flying birds have a powerfull image as well as very elegant figures against the sky.

Your raptor, the red foot falcon, poses in your shot as strong as a gladiator and as delicate as a butterfly.

Hallo Eyal
I don't like this photo at all. I love it! You managed to capture a wonderful pose with perfect detail. The colours vibrant and there are so many details to appreciate. I especially refer to the impressive and most elegant wingspan, and the detail of the eye captured. Exposure, framing and focus are excellent. Very well done and thanks for sharing this beautiful bird with us. It was a pleasure and delight to look at.
Kind regards

Hello Eyal,

The bird you have captured in this photo is in an excelent pose. Viewer can feel the concentration of the predator fallowing the prey. Sarpness and colors are very good bringing ven more value to the photo.

Thank you for sharing,
