    Nice framing with all the snowflakes and the shutter speed works well for the snowing effect. The shooting angle is a little steep - if this was a set up perch I'd recommend a bit closer to eye level next time, but if its all natural then it is what it is. Maybe a little extra sharpening on the head - the wings look a tad sharper to me

    Hi John,
    Really like these snowy shots - we rarely have a chance for them in Memphis - and the BG shows off the snow really well. A beautiful subject. Agree about the shooting angle being a bit steep.

    Hi John,

    If this is at a set-up, please mention it when you post. Either way, a lower perch would have been preferred. With the head turned a bit too much toward us the face is in the dark and the eye is dead :(
