    OK, do I really have to say why I love this high key treatment. PMP and TFS.

    Cool pose, Will, I think it could go darker...

    Great high key diving pose, William. I would try adding a tad of contrast, and or a small amount of Structure slider if you have that in any of your plugins.

    This is a great frame but it is hard to do a follow-up after the last fantastic 2 images.
    Agree with darkening the bird slightly.
    A really terrific dynamic image,

    Hi Will, beautiful bird. Love the diving position. I agree that the image appears a tad washed out. Thank you for sharing.

    I ditto Arash's comments. I would bump the blacks and turn down the whites to combat the lack of contrast.

    Great dorsal view. Love high key frames like this one. Nice detail and sharpness on the bird.
