    Not a whole lot wrong with that one Jo - it's a beauty - well done!!
    I like as presented if it were mine (wish it was!) I would have a go at luminosity masking in the whites to try to enhance detail - it is good as is but I feel a little more could be forthcoming.

    Very nice image, Joseph! Excellent detail across the tonal range, and the feather detail is excellent. Catchlight in eye is perfect, and he's sharp wing to wing. An excellent view of this species.

    A beauty, Joe. No nits from me. Great flight shot. As I sit looking out the window on a gloomy rainy day, I am green with envy of you Floridians with such wonderful subjects an hours drive from your home. I'm itching to start traveling again.

    Joe, a really nicely presented TIF (Tern in Flight).

    Nice, warm light, processed well and sharp as it can be. Additionally, great job getting focus wingtip to wingtip!

    Well done my friend!

    DATPA. In perfect world the wings would have been raised a bit and the bird would have been correspondingly lower in the frame.

    Hi Artie, thank you for commenting and viewing. I looked and do have one with the wings raised more.
