Nice photo of this Pallid Harrier in good sharpness and a great composition. Beautiful colours in spite of the harsh light.

Technically a great image with optimal fast shutter speed, sharpness is excellent, but for me the composition doesn't work too well, I mean the blurred, empty space is too much to my taste while the bird's too small compared to the frame, a tighter crop imho might work better.
Tfs, friendly regards, László
A brave attempt Tom ...a controversial capture as seems, but I personally love the space around the bird, and .....what a spectacular depth this lens of yours creates , smooth as a baby b...! Love it! The only thing which deserve attention in my opinion is the overall brightness, which is in abundance ;) Have a look the highlights in the original ...they are gone ...like a wind !
The Pallid Harrier is a beautiful streamlined bird of prey, which I'm sure was not easily captured in full flight, as you have so wonderfully done so. I also like the wide crop as it gives the appearance of a natural hunting scene.
I do agree with George though as far as overall brightness. The attractive colors and detail of it's plumage seem to be lost somewhat by the harsh light. I did my own try in the WS to see what I could come up with. Hope you don't mind.

Pallid Harrier with placid BG, quite likable. A bit excess light on the bird - though I may be wrong.
