Nice portrait of this Buzzard. The image is of great quality. If it were my image I would have probably given the Buzzard a little more head room but that is only my opinion. I like the way you have captured the light in its eye.

Hi Carole, A lovely close shot of this fine & pristine bird, the shallow DOF is excellent & the light is perfect, the razor sharp focus brings out some great detail & TFS, kind regards Wilson.
Very beautiful portrait of this buzzard.
The pose of the bird lhead downwards with an interesting look in the eye is wonderful.
I also love the feather details, colors, light in the eye and the soft background colors, against wich the buzzard does stand out perfectly, very much.
Still think that with a little work in photoshop details, clarity and color saturation can be improved.
I did give it a try.
Hopefully you like it, and when not, please tell me :)
Thanks for sharing.

You have made the buzzard look beautiful. Outstanding sharpness and details. Amazing eye. Nice natural colors. My only nit is that I think it is cropped a little close at top. TFS.

This is a beautiful portrait of this Buzzard! How close were you? I really like the detailed feathers and the fantastic reflection in the eye. Also very beatiful colours in the BG.
