Two really nice ones with the willet a slight favorite due to the background...are the whites a little hot on the left wing...tough to tell on laptop? If they are it is pretty minimal at most.

Wow, I like both of these a lot!
The feather detail and coloration in the Harrier is gorgeous!! Love the look on the willet but the Harrier is my fave

Thanks Eric
The whites look good. The best way to tell is to open the photo in photoshop and use histogram to see what the whites read. Laptop screens are usually not very good for looking at photos

PS. I wish this site had a calibration strip at the bottom so people could get a feel if their brightness is set right.

Thanks, we do make visual rather than histogram judgements and I agree the latter is better.
I should have known better, sorry for the witless nit!

Great harrier shot! The lighting looked soft and even, letting the feather colors really pop.

Both are very nice Arash, but the Willet has a slight edge for me ~ Ron

Arash,

Both are great captures. I'll go with the Willet here since I like that great background.
