[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After two weeks driving through Cuba it was a great experience, very nice people at the end we stayed near the beach and there were e few vultures.
It was very difficult to catch, flying a lot of sun but I managed it a little bit I think.

Thanks for looking

Hi viv,

A nice inflight with good sharpness,pov and details,however the bg looks a bit bright to me,maybe you could use PP to decrease the brightness of the BG,


Hi Vivian,
I was thinking Kruger but we moved to Cuba:-)
Nice in flight; impressive wings. Hey, I've been to Cuba too:-) a long time ago though...

Hi Vivian,
Great bird!
Well done,

great pic, I would darken it a little, TFS Ori

Hi Vivian,
This is one of the best vulture shots I've seen here.
Nice clear details and point of view.
Great work

Hello Vivian ! In december I was in Cuba too and tried to get a good picture of those Vultures but couldn't do a good job like you. They are very difficult to get well because of the clear skies and sun but you managed to do it very well, I'M jealous ! :-)



I think you did very well Vivian. The whole vulture is quite sharp and the exposure on him is perfect. Nice work.

Hi Viv, you did a very good job in catching this Vulture! Great POV as the feathers in the wings are almost translucent, the shot emphazises the vast wing span of this bird. Good sharpness and colour, great compoositon.

I am dying to go to Cuba, I hope I can go some time this year, would be great to see any other photos from Cuba.

hi vivian,
very interesting photo.

bonjour vivian
le ciel me gene aussi, je vois que paul a proposé un WS,personellement j'aurais tenté dans les bleus plutot que gris mais....
a part cela je trouve la netteté bonne et pas mal de details.

Hello Vivian! Marvelous photo! Great moment. Hasta a victoria siempre!
