    Arash:

    Perfect dorsal view, orange bill works well with blue background, nice catchlight, well exposed. Just the right amount of detail in background to add depth without distraction.

    Cheers

    Perfect pose, beautiful light, although I would still add little more black in selective colour, as even with the late light the bird looks a little brown to me

    Love the light....I can see where Mike is coming from re the blacks, but, being last light, I am sure this is how it must have looked. Very nice flight pose and BG colours.

    Very nice image.

    Background colors and wing position and Head Angle really make this image.

    A great shot of this bird in flight, I struggle with their look so prefer the shots of them skimming.

    You can't really ask for better than this for a banking flight image. Very nice Arash!

    A lovely full-stretch banking pose, captured beautifully in nice light.

    Sweet banking pose, light, catchlight, and detail. BG is great too. Pretty much a perfect banking shot. No nits from me, TFS
