This is a superb portrait of a kestrel. I love the tiny details, the texture of his feathers, catchlight in EACH eye, and the sharpness of his beak. The exposure is excellent, but mostly, you did an wonderful job with the composition, including the framing.

Gotta laugh just a bit. It looks so much like a mug shot from the old days in the post office...Wanted! And Kestrel, I have seen them, sounds like Jesse James...for robbery! Fine shot...and all of this from NY!:-) You are in need of a Senator:-)

Beautifully sharp with wonderful detail. I like the symmetry of the bird's pose, they way you have composed your shot as a portrait and the subtlety of the OOF background. Well done!

What a great close-up portrait of the wonderful bird. I am impressed with applied exposure parameters (first of all I mean aperture value) and excellent use of flash. Expression of bird's eyes is great as well as the terrific sharpness and details. I also like light and absolutely smooth BG. Bravo and best wishes.

Model bu kadar güzel olunca portre de haliyle bu kadar hoş oluyor. Başarılı bir çalışma.
