A very good shot of this bird, just ashame it was not facing the camera. Good sharpness, i also wonder how long you had to wait...well done.

Chris, Niceshot of this bird. Beautiful pose of the bird on the tree. Well seen. Pitty the rain takes away some contrast. I would crop part of the right to get more focus on the bird. I tried a fast workshop just before leaving ;-)
In psite of my remarks I think this is a good shot.
Greetings, Jan

Good composition. Intresting position of this bird. Nice shot.

Nice shot Chris,like the compo here however I would have cropped different and added less brightness..made ws to compare

The composition I like a lot especially the way it is looking ready to dive into the empty space. it does suffer from the the lighting conditions with the rain.
I would of liked the notes to say more about its prey and the bird and its surroundings .

A good first performance, Chris.
Nice composition and point of view.

I wish you the most cordial welcome on TN.
In the pleasure to admire your next posts and to read your notes and critics. ;-)
I would like to write a comment on each of your posts and I will do it, with the time.
Thank you for sharing.

I like this one because the composition is out of the ordinary. Not sure if I see colour fringing on the white feathers, or they're supposed to be slightly pink.

Hi Chris

Nice shot. Good clarity, colours, sharpness and detail. Thanks. :-)
