    Welcome to BPN, Kurt. Excellent fishing capture. Like the wing positions, feet opened ready for the catch, and the intense gaze at the prey.

    Nice action shot. Like most everything about other than the head being slightly angled away.

    Focus hit the feet which are great... I would try to sharpen the head a bit more.
    Whites are right on the edge.

    Kurt, pretty landing pose here. I actually like the specular highlights in the deep blues at the water.

    Agree with Jack on head angle, that's the main issue here for me. Wish the eye/head were a tad more in focus as well as Dan mentioned.

    TFS.

    All good stuff above, esp. with regards to the bird angling slightly away from you, most likely due to the wind direction. In a perfect world, the near underwing would have been fully raised and thus fully lit. The pose is quite wicked.
