Welcome to TN Adrian, its good to have your exelent images here.
This one is no exception you can feel the bird floating on the updraft.
Very nicely exposed all feathers visible right down to the one out of place on the near wing. DOF also cover wing tip to wing tip Nice one.

Nice with the white on the black BG, and the note, too, is good. The whites and blacks always have a battle for dominance, but I think the exposure here is fine

Hello Adrian - glad to see you here too. Very nice picture of a beautiful seabird. Well controlled light with no burn in the white feathers and a nice dark background to set him off. Educational note too.

Beautiful capture of this gannet, one of the breeds of seabird I'd most like to see in real life because of their beautiful heads ;-))
To repeat what's been said before: Good details, DOF and light.

Hi Adrian, I love the contrast of the white bird and dark background! Quite a chore in catching a white bird with no burn! Excellent job!

Bella imagen Adrian.
Excelente DOF, encuadre y nitidez.
Muy buan ailuminacion y colorido.
Felicitaciones por una gran composicion!
Beautiful image Adrian.
Excellent DOF, frame and clearness.
Very good colorful and lighting.
Congratulations by a great composition!
Nothing to add technically, it's a textbook composition about bird photography : everything tack sharp, wings are widely spread, it flies through the pic the correct -westerner- way from left to right.
Talking about color correction, I'm quite sensitive to a typically magenta/blue color cast the Provia (or the Provia scan) gives. I experimented selecting with the level eyedropper some neutral grey pixels over its feathery or shadow areas, it gives back a very pleasant warmer tone, specially for the background; You should try and see whether you like it better than the colder version.

This is a stunning shot of the Australasian Gannet. The dark BG helps the light details of the bird stand out. Exposure is excellent. Nice POV across the wingspan. I love visiting Muriwai. Nice work. Thanks.
