    pretty cool image! the focus is sharp but I wish the image had more fine details. If you have the pixels perhaps post a bit larger if it holds up.... Don't you wish there was a D500 or D5 in 2012. You did well with the 12 mega pixel camera which was the latest in 2012 but sounds like a joke in 2020!

    Nice flight pose you captured Geoffrey...I like the pano crop. Yes, posted bigger and this image would have more impact.

    This is excellent. I like it much more than the previous image.
    Love that Iceland BG.
    Great incoming pose and nice and sharp. If IQ can hold up, I would crop in left and right by about 5% on eac side.

    That's a beauty Geoffrey. The background rocks! An alternative to Gail's good suggestion is to add 10% at right only to have the skua a bit more off-center. Still love it as is.
