[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The same bird than yesterday
Following the suggestions of Laszlo, this picture has been taken a few seconds earlier the bird being closer and a bit cropped
Following the useful ws of George and Ron, the picture was a bit darkened but still keeping the natural whitish appearance of Pallid Harrier, the light was not harsh, it was very early morning with low standing sun

Thanks to all for the useful comments

Hello Tom

Yes, there is enough free space in front of the
bird to can fly and in the same time it is closer
image to show the details of the plumage, TFS


Hi Tom,

perfect this time.


Hi Tom,

Hello Tom,
I like this one more. Great close photo with excellent sharpness, details and beautiful natural colours. Excellent composition.

Hi Tom,
You're learning extremely fast from critiques. :) I may repeat all the positive elements from my yesterday critique and add the balance of the composition is excellent now. Perfect job. Bravo!
Friendly regards, László

...and TA DAAAA the results is far more convincing this time ..at least in my eyes, specially in regards to the brightness issue. I still prefer the feeling of space in the previous post Tom! This background is rather boring;)))

Hello Tom,
We in the North have to cope a lot with low lighting, difficult at times. jere the lighting was well managed to show this male Pallid Harrier with fine colours and sharpness while in flight against a clean sky. Perfectly composed too!
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Tom

Best regards

beautiful shot of this male harrier


Ciao Tom, great capture of lovely bird in a fantastic fly, wonderful natural colors, perfect focus and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Tom,
Le cadrage me paraît un peut trop large mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé grâce à sa formidable opposition sur l'arrière plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Tom,
such a lovely capture in good clarity. The inflight is not that easy and you did well.
Simple yet, attractive and pleasant view.

Hello Tom,
Now this is definitely an awesome shot!! I would love to be able to capture a quality image of a bird of prey scanning the ground for dinner, like this one is obviously doing. Detail, color, exposure is simply perfect!!

nice flight capture, TFS Ori
