    Default Dunlin

    Not the most exciting species from a plumage standpoint, but it doesn't get much harder than getting this tiny
    speedster in a full bank pose. So yeah, pretty stoked with this one!

    I did add a touch of canvas to the top of the frame.

    good banking pose, I like the blue BG , I wish the tail was fanned. on my screen the image looks a bit over sharpened especially the beak/face area.

    Wonderful image, Dorian. Maybe a fanned tail would make it better but this is really good, a perfect topside flight position. Thank you for sharing.

    Dorian:

    Excellent dorsal display, well framed and exposed. Nice background. Certainly sharp, tip toeing on becoming a bit crunchy in some areas.

    Cheers

    Comments on sharpening noted. I have backed off a bit for the file that will end up on my website and social media (not worth reposting). Cheers!

    I thought sharpness looked fine. Excellent top side view.

    Very Nice Like the wingposition.

    Sharpening looks fine to me.

    Killer poser, with that banking pose offering us a great view of the dorsal feathers and wing patterns! Love pretty much everything here.

    I can only wish that I had the physical skills to even attempt shots like this. Is this from a horizontal original? How large a crop?

    In case I forgot to mention it, this one is exquisite.

    Sweet shot of this speedster. I would be thrilled to have captured this one. Love the wing extension, details and background.

    Dorian, beautiful. Dorsal shot perpendicular to the sensor, lit very well on sweet blue bkdrop...

    The og is just a touch over sharpened to my eyes but sure you'll dial it in.
