You catch him very well.
ISO 400 is no problem with a 300D, no noise up to ISO400.
Good details , nice colours and good composition.
Very well done.

I'm breathless...that's one, if not the best Bird of Prey headshots on TN. Fantastic, well done Japie.

Admirable nitidez y agudeza Japie.
Los finos detalles de su plumaje pueden verse con total facilidad.
Bello colorido con un POV maravilloso al igual que el DOF logrado.
Gran nota tambien.
Admirable clearness and sharpness Japie.
The fine details of their plumage can be seen with total facility.
Beautiful colorful with a wonderful POV like the obtained DOF.
Great note also.
Japie, Superb clarity, detail & sharpness seen! I like the angle of the shot very much also. BG contrasts very well. That eye detail..That eyelid or ridge seems to give this Jackel Buzzard an almost sad look! Very well done!

Another superb shot! The detail captured is unbelievable and I believe this is one of the best rapture shots Iíve seen in a long time. Donít let Bird and Birding get a hold of this; they might make you an offer ;-). Do you have a full size shot? Iíd like to have a look at it.

What a beautiful portrait, Japie. Rich colors on the light and shade side, very artistic. It comes to the point where photography fits in with painting. A very delicate texture, showing all the subtle hues visible in those thin feathers. Perfect background.

Goeie grond! This is fantastic Japie. I thought my mugshots were nice until this one. Simply the best. Really!

Ek wil net sÍ, die turaco en duif is BAIE mooi. This one is moody, excellent, down to the wet bill. This is not the guy you sent me, it is better! Mooi man!

Absolutely superb!!! Baie mooi, Japie. I like the light just where it counts. Very good work.
Good shot! I really love the piercing detail in the eye here, and the shot is excellent overall too - DOF/focus/lighting are all good. My only concern is that there's a bit of noise - not bad on the bird, but slightly distracting in bokeh. Also you appear to have a couple of hot pixels - one blue (just to the left of the beak tip) and one red (in the feathers), it might be worth seeing if Canon can remap those for you - I don't have any that are visible with this sort of shutter speed on my 10D... Informative note too, as usual! Very nicely captured :-D
P.S. I've posted a Workshop for you reducing the noise, see what you think!

This is the best I've seen on TN yet.
