    Very nice flight capture, Joe. I like the full outstretched wings, and the foliage background. I could imagine just the tiniest bit more sharpening, but that's a matter of taste

    Nice view of the underwings and good eye contact. Sharpness looks pretty good. A more uniform BG would improve the image (preferably a green one).

    Hi Joe, well exposed on the underwings, and I like how the head is separated from the far wing. Good DOF between both wing tips.

    Nice wingspread.
    Good catchlight in the eye.
    I agree with a hint more sharpening of the head.

    Fab frame Joe. Great colours you have on the bird and lovely detail on the wings. The BG fits the frame nicely.

    Nice landing pose Joe. Exposure looks very nice. I think the whole bird could use a little more sharpening. I agree with Doug that it would be better if the brighter area of the background would was green.
