Salut Radu!
Personnellement, je trouve cette composition un peu serrée. Le vautour manque d'espace.
Ceci dit, la qualité intrinsèque de la photo est impeccable avec une abondance de détails clairs, en particulier le haute définition du plumage. En espérant que tu trouves un peu de temps pour élaborer ta note...

The close cropping 'kinda' works with the subject,though maybe a bit close at the top.
The POV I like...gives the vulture a 'furtive' look.
Have fun in Baja.

Very good shot, but I prefer the B&W version.

Radu, I like your title, very fitting. Life-like colors, (hey they're drab) & great detail, sharpness. Nothing pretty about this sucker!!!

Great angle and I like the sharpness and DOF. Enjoy Baja

Very well done and thanks for posting

Very nice sharp shot Radu the colours look to be spot on, the pose is good too , but it could do with a little more space above the shoulders.

This must be a juvie because adult Turkey Vultures have bright red heads and even first year have reddish heads. Black Vultures look similar to this one, but they are not on the west coast, but here in the east. Nice photo, Radu. I still think it would be awesome in sepia... now if I could figure out how to do a workshop I would try it out. :0)

Radu, interesting composition. I agree with Robert on the space above though. Lesley's WS is a nice rendition of it in Sepia. The blacks were handled exceptionally well. It looks like a black vulture for me as well... Any thoughts on it?
