    Nice when you get the opportunity to use a smaller lens, but shoot wider to encompass the habitat/environment too. A bird lovers paradise.

    Thanks to those who posted or viewed on the last posting.

    That's a beauty Steve.....What a setting, the BG brings so much to the image....Lovely pose on the bird with a good HA...and nice feather detail.....The light direction works well here for me, as I like the look of the 'half' shadow....The raised talon adds....Good POV and a lovely reflection.

    Well done

    Will

    Thank you Will, glad you liked it.

    Have you got the first falls of snow yet? Remember, if shooting in snow you are more likely to be EV+.

    This is nice Steve. I echo William's positives here, although the whites on the bird's head and neck look a little hot on my monitor.

    Clean sharp and ideal colours. I am not crazy about the head angle but good to see a raised foot. Shadow on the bird does not trouble me at all.

    Superb POV Steve! I like it a lot. Good reflection too and the colours are spot on too. Good use of wider angle. TFS.

    Hi Paul, thinks it's the monitor, obviously with only 256 colours for sRGB you are limited, but they are ok, however I appreciate it.

    What HA would you have preferred Jon, I think side on shows far more in profile???

    Shadows minimal, didn't even think about them.

    Cheers Andreas, just thinking of various options, other than the 1st one.
