    A different flight shot compared to what we normally see of a Puffin here Jon, head turn is a nice bonus. Details look much better compared tp previous. I think you could add some Contrast or a midtone Curve, if the eye is the darkest then I might push it a tad more for the shadows under the wing. Just a though, but overall a niceBIF.

    Very nice Jonathan. Agree with Steve here to a bit more 'punch' Would love to photograph this species one day! Background compliments the bird nicely.

    Hi Jon, I agree with Steve regarding a different flying pose. Wonderful head turn, good detail on the bird, pure background. Thank you for sharing.

    hi Jon ... love the award looking posing of the Puffin including the ´communicative `head turn he gave you . nice captured .
    processing looks good to me , but i would like to see a bit more punch in mid and darker tones .... matter of taste . and I might add brightness ....
    the white breast/ belly feathers ... are looking a bit muddy due to color cast .

    tfs Andreas
