    love the dynamic pose.you are finally getting there, sweet BG. The details look a bit crunchy as if the bird had too much NR applied to it

    Wow! This is sick Kambiz! That pose and the BG are killer. Love the calling pose. As Arash has suggested, turning down the NR on the bird a touch would help. I could see a version with slightly less contrast/clarity. That's personal preference though and it's absolutely stunning as presented. TFS

    Great action! Really engaging with the calling pose. This frame represents the speed of this powerful bird perfectly. I'd back off the NR as suggested. Frame also seems to have a slight pink cast. Only you know if that is representative of the scene at the time!

    I really like how the bird is 'coming at you' out of the frame. Very well captured ...Agree about the NR.

    This one says speed. The screaming pose is nice. Killer background.

    Wow, here is one example of when a "flat" wing position works. This one screams action. NR suggestions already offered.

    Killer scream and lens :). I like the repost as the brown feathers on the face do not look smoothed out as they did in the OP. At least to my eyes :)

    Thank you so much Artie and Arash...

    Coming mostly from human subjects and portraits, it's probably gonna take me some time to get consistency in my PP workflow for Avian photography...

    You are welcome.

    Here are three recommendations that will help:
