[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Turkey Vulture flew right in front of me as I shot the sunset on January 8. The quality of the image impressed me so much when I came home that the only adjustments I had to make were just a bit on hue, saturation and a slight sharpening.

Hola Feather. Excellent photo. Great and nice colors. Nice moment You capture here.

Hi Feather,
And this impress also to me!
It's amazing the tone got on the overall image, so poetic and artistic.
Love the silhouette of the vulture, it's placed at the perfect side, and just touching the sun with the tip of the wing.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
Best regards,


Merci pour cette très jolie photo pleine de douceur et de romantisme !
