Hi Kiran
Wonderful capture
Nice presentation

Hi Kiran.
Lovely flight image with good detail. Not sure on the colour, it looks a little grey-brown on my screen. Was it done on sun-rise or sun-set?
I put the eye-dropper in curves on where I thought would be a white feather and it has changed the colour, I'll do a workshop to show you as sometimes shooting into the light can alter the colour from what it was.
Lovely flight shot,

Hi Kiran,
excellent moving shot of the bird.

in flight just as elegant as in stalking position
a ballet type shot with wing structure clearly shown
