Don't get the opportunity to see or photograph these guys often. Thrilled when I saw this one.

Just a slight change in my position gave a completely different background.

As always your nits, crits , comments and suggestions are needed to help me improve.

Hope you enjoy,

Birdie

Really nice couple of hawks Birdie and I do enjoy the change in backgrounds - isn't it nice when things work out so well

Nice set Birdie. Would love to be this close to a raptor.

You get my last 'nudge' of 2012 Birdie......

#1 A very nice comp and good use of the fence rail. Great head turn to get that super important eye contact! Love the BG but I think you can take this image further with a simple tweak........less exposure/a bit more contrast but save the eye area as it looks great!

#2 Again a little less brightness which will give a bit more contrast and maybe even a little Vibrance boost as this will enhance your subtle colors a bit more, that is a splendid BG and to be super nit-picky a little touch up directly behind the birds feathers that are sticking out, 5th tip from the top. The angle is a bit odd but the colors and subject hold my attention Apply a bit more USM sharpening too perhaps

Don't get me wrong, these are great but greater is better You have the talent Birdie, I see it in all your work.

I like #1 -- very sharp with nice BG. Second shot is also very nice -- eye isn't as sharp (looks a little dreamy) on my screen.

The first has the best IQ and is a real nice image. I like the composition of the second Roberta yet it's not quiet crisp, possibly too tight a crop. Do you step interpolate when you crop?

Have a Happy New Year,

Morris
