    hi Will ... i do prefer the previous shot , as the one bird is turned away too much for my taste .
    i am again 50/50 on your choice of color depth , a bit flat for my taste .

    technically nicely done .

    tfs Andreas

    Hi Will, agree with Andreas on both counts, however I think the R6 is slowly easing you out of your comfort zone. Glad you didn't go for the R5, you would struggle with ISO, SS and the MPX's.

    Nice one Will the one on the right is unfortunately far from ideal but nevertheless you have some good action. Seems like you are posting a little on the flat side (as I have been!!) A little more punch may be good but I do think these are juveniles so I would not expect colouration to be the same as a breeding adult.
