    I made this image on my North Dakota trip. This was taken on the first day of the Trip. We waited for some time after setting up the blind and I was really happy to see this bird.

    Nikon D850, 600 f/4 + 1.4x TCIII
    Info 1/4000s f/5.6 ISO1600
    Cropped in from Right
    RAW processing using Capture one
    Clone one small twig near foot.

    Let me know your thoughts and comments.

    Love the blue background and definitely low. I remember this guy I didn't shoot very many frames of him just so beat up. Nice raised foot adds to the image. Nice overall . Just call him scruffy. TFS

    Very appealing image here with a super nice low angle and BG. Raised foot adds a lot. He does look pretty scruffy...with nothing on this species I'd have hit the shutter en masse as well. Maybe needs darker midtones as posted, and I'd likely trade about 10-15 % off the bottom to add back above. Super job overall though!

    Wonderful frame. Great pose and setting. Maybe some day I'll get there. I agree with Daniel: a smidge off the bottom added to the top, and a few points of black added to midtones. But I'd take this in a heartbeat.

    Hi Krishna, I like the low perspective and the light looks nice and soft. Lots of feather detail to look at, and well timed to capture the raised foot and cocked tail. I feel the comp is just fine as is.

    I agree with the suggestions. Very nice frame, great angle and details and the BG is about as nice as it gets..

    Looks great. Nice low angle. The raised foot is nice. I do like the framing.

    Krishna, gorgeous frame you have here. Splendid composition, well lit across the subject, great dof and fantastic bkg transition.

    This is near perfect for me. All I could suggest is a slight bump in the mid range as it presents just a bit 'light' in terms of punch.

    Super well done man!!

    Hi Krishna .... great stuff , I like it as presented

    As I am always open tp play with tonal range ... I would try the mid tone move as suggested , but not GLOBALLY

    Very nice work , TFS Andreas
