another first class shot from the BWC, i really must get down there. Excellent detail and perfectly exposed, we can almost see you in his eye!

A fabulous portrait from you taken at that great BWC!
I just wish i had more time in my trip to England...i would like to go there (and many other beautiful places) but i can't squeeze in everything :(
Anyway, the tight close-up here is terrific and not only shows a very intimate view of this beautiful kestrel but it also adds a bit more drama to the compo, in my opinion.
The details are outstanding and the color reproduction is lovely and spot-on. Very good exposure management and great DOF choice for such a shot! Superbly done!
BRAVO and TFS
