You should be happy with this new lens and with this beautiful picture, wow! This is a very nice and rare capture. Colors, details, exposure and lightning are just great! I love this light it its eye a lot and this beautiful blue sky! This is very well done! I wish I have such a nice picture of a raptor too :) Thanks,
Nice capture with the new lens, I have owned it for over a month now and think it's superb.
The detail is nice and sharp here with nice light on top of the bird. However, due to this light there is the dark shadow under the bird which isn't ideal.

Fine capture of a Kestrel in a sharp and well composed presentation with a fine sky BG. Even though you used the max focal length you must have been able to come close to be able to produce such a sharp and detailed image.

Great shot, I think your new Lens is a sucess, I love the pose with the Kestral balancing on the top of the Pine Tree, nice sharp image with great colours and I like the Blue Sky BG.
TFS Hilary :o)
That's fantastic! This chap really stands proud up there !
I love the strong contrast and colors. Your lens seems very sharp @ 300mm - impressive shot.
Wishing you many more such great captures with your new lens and share them so we enjoy as well.

Estética, precisa, luminosa y muy aguda captura David con excelente punto de vista para aprovechar el imponente cielo como fondo de la escena.
Los detalles y colores del ave son realmente muy atractivos visualmente.
Gran entrega, sin dudas.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Congratulations on your new lens, David.
It seems to be complementing your talent.
What a gorgeous kestrel.
Beautiful composition: I love those tall straight pine branches, and the raptor perched right on top of one.
Well-saturated colors and a great blue sky BG.
