    Here is the lady that was accompanying the male I posted earlier. It was a brief but fun (and windy) session!

    Canon 7DII + 500,, f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/1250s., f/5.6, ISO 400, natural light, handheld, small crop to help the comp.

    Daniel:
    I really like the wind assisted 'hair do', low POV, exposure, sharpness and comp. The few drops are nice as well.

    Any eye work needed here?

    Cheers

    Nice one Dan. I love the low POV, the wind blown feathers, eye and detail look good. Slightly off angled light was handled well on the face. TFS

    All looks good from my "armchair"!
    Great POV and IQ and the windblown head feathers add a lot to the image,

    She's a beauty, Dan. Like the light direction bringing out all the fine details, and the exceptional low POV.

    That low angle is right on. Nice view of the crest as well. Waiting for that head turn payed off with some nice light on the face.
