    Taken on the edge of a cliff at the Isle of Lunga. Tricky lighting here, not too sure if it will appeal? I nearly eliminated the OOF circular highlights but then I decided I liked them.

    OM-1, 300mm f4 (600mm ff equiv)

    ISO 200 -1.7EV, 1/2500 sec f5.0

    Hi Jon ... the look at the viewer of the Fulmar is very nice and making this image for me !!!
    Image looks very good in terms of IQ , comp and I do like the darkish ocean .... but would prefer a brighter less contrasty subject to make it really pop from the BG .
    Just my take .... and for sure a matter of taste

    Very nice flight shot taken from above ....

    TFS Andreas

    Lovely dorsal view with good bit of head turn. Looks great over the dark ocean.

    The only thing that would make this better is a bit better head angle, but boy-oh-boy the texture on the wings and tail is to die for! Nice deep blue BG too.

    Jon, a really great pose and it works well against the darker waters.

    The main nit for me is the flight angle. I probably would not have chosen to process it personally, but you managed to render some fine texture in the processing.

    As above, the dorsal view of the wings with all that detail is spectacular. The tail is not as good. And the head, with it being turned away and the dirty chin is less than ideal.
