I really like the pose of the bird, the composition and the details in the eye and on the black plumage. The white feathers however are OE and so is the light part on the beak. The BG is great and so is DOF. Well done & TFS!

Excellent portrait of the Vulture. Well done on the composition.
The whites are O.E.

Hi Jaap, nice portrait. I like the composition/tight crop and the focus is very good. The only critisisms I have is that the whites are over-exposed and the black feathers in the bottom right look like a little too much noise reduction has been done. Apart from that, great shot.

Hi Jaap, what a beautiful eye colour it has. This is a nice composition filled with the vultures head. My major nit is to the overexposed areas at the tip of the bill and the back of the head.
Anyway a nice picture to look at.
Thank you for sharing.

Obviuosly is not one of your best exposed photos, but I must say the big details are very well seen. The black feathers look lovely. Regards, Felipe.

Great shot Jaap,
Well composed, good detail, colours and sharpness.
Nicely captured, good POV and DOF. A shame about bits of OE, but still a good capture
Thanks for posting, have a good weekend.

Dit zou ik niet durven dergelijke macro maken, maar wat één, de kwaliteit is van de bovenste plank, ook is het wit op de zijkant aanwezig, de ogen en de kop samen met de bek overstemmen alles, prachtig werk wat u ons laat zien Jaap, en zeggen dat dit gemaakt is met uw (oud !!!) toestel.

Jaap, I don't know if I have already told you I do enjoy vultures. I myself have already taken many pictures of them.
I do like your shot. Excellent details and composition, great pov. The red eye is a great "bonus".
I added your picture to a theme of mine.

Very good portrait of this vulture! I like the composition and details of the face and black feathers. Only whites are OE but still a good capture! TFS

Wow ! The bird is not beautiful but the shot is beautiful ;-)
Composition, details and sharpness are good ! Thanks for sharing Jaap.
Aside from the slight over-exposure, it's a great picture! Thanks for sharing!
This should be a south american condor, Vultur gryphus, but I'm not sure...

Foto van een echte Belg:-)?
Heb van dezelfde knaap een foto gemaakt.
Vergeet ook altijd de ID van 't bordje te noteren, druk doende zijnde bij 't fotograferen.
Leuk portret, goede compo.
