    Lovely pose you captured John. I may try cropping a wee bit tighter, as the plain looking BG looks like a lot of empty space. Nice detail on the bird, I would sharpen the head a little.

    Super sharp and beautifully lit, John. I like that we can see the orange legs even in this flight frame. Some of the whites look a bit hot (this is a tough exposure on this high contrast bird), and the right side of the frame feels a bit empty with the wide-ish crop as presented.

    Nice capture John. The pose and the detail look great. Maybe just a hare hot? Well done. I will be at Nickerson beach one morning next week. Do you shoot there a lot?

    Thanks David. I only go down a couple times a year.
