    For this image I was laying near the edge of a cliff where I saw this pair of Razorbills popping their heads up above the edge. The BG is another grassy cliff in the distance separated by the sea down below.

    I love this one William. Details are killer and both have great head angles. Great perspective here. Would not change anything at all.

    Yes, William this is very nice! Exposure looks good and the voyeuristic view works well.

    Double good! Razorbills are tough for exposure with less than ideal light, however, i like the interaction and the head shots, TFS Will

    Good detail, nice interaction and well done to get them in the same focal plane. Light is somewhat harsh but we take what we are given.

    The light was getting harsh, but you've dealt with it best you can. Nice image overall, I love the face-to-face poses.

    What amazing birds, Will. Love the poses on the two. Great detail and I imagine a tricky one to process but tonal range looks very well handled especially as the light wasn't on your side. I'm unsure about the OOF foreground although you couldn't have done a lot. I think it may have worked better for me if there had either been more of the foreground or none at all. Make something of it or get rid of it, if you know what I mean. Still a minor point on what is a really fine shot.

    Nice interaction and good exposure and handling of the harsh light. The poses work so well together. I see a bit of magenta in the browns, but that could just be me so not sure. Nice BG as well. TFS
