    Beautiful bird with great approach angle and view of that face. Composition also works well for me. TFS

    Very nice Jonathan. Great flight pose and HA. I think there is more detail in the darks that you can extract?

    I like it! I do wish the far wing was "fuller", but I like the overall image. Perfect body and head angle.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.
    Here is a repost Paul I have made another as per your suggestions but not too sure?
    Andreas I did bring down the highlights in particular the ones on the dorsal neck surface, I brought them down a little more in this one.

    Agreed, this is why I posted the original, I didn't like the lifted version.

    The pose of the harrier is nice. I do like the framing. Nice high key work.
