    What a stunning portrait. Love that look back pose and there's just enough environment to really lift the image.

    I was a bit split on your previous posting, it just looked a little unbalanced, but I'm in no doubt at all about this one!

    I love the dorsal view with that head turn, and the composition is bang on the money. Great light has allowed superb details, this is the best perched Peregrine shot Ive seen for a long time.

    Beautiful image. Nothing to nit pick here. Really like the way the bird contrasts with both the background and rocks.

    I have some of the exact same looking frames of this handsome tiercel on the same perch. Great looking back pose and Nice details in this beautiful filtered light. Love the ocean color too. Well done Tim.

    Love the perch and ocean backdrop with the look out pose. Also like the bit of green on the bottom of the frame. Nice details as well. TFS

    The other shot was nice, but this one is much better in my opinion. Just love the look of it staring out over the ocean. Agree with all above. Details, light, perch, ocean all look great. If mine I would crop out the bit of rock on the right and bottom. Or perhaps I would crop the right side and clone the bottom as I don't think either of those 2 pieces add anything to the shot. Very nice image.
