A pose not easy to shot, the focus is a few soft but it's a nice image

I dont like this shot and will tell you why. Composition and light is interesting. Sharpness is very poor. I aloso think that you did the buckground bluring (but you blur also the tree trunk and some parts of the bird and it doesnt look nice.

I concur with Silke. The pose is quite attractive Reid. There is an unusual and unique quality to the color. It looks "official"...there is no word I can think of...but as in a documentation which has official quality colors..such as rag paper which Treasury Dept used to use. Very interesting.

excellent photo for a photo not easy to shot,
i like the framing of the image, the angle you took the photo
but it is a little bit overexposed on the highlights
to blur the backround i don't use the gaussian blur,
i instead use the lens blur who is on Photoshop CS2

Hi Mr. Reid,
A lovely capture of this hawk. It looks like it just finished the spider. :D just joking. Nice composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Nice pose of the hawk looking down, slightly soft in the focus but still good detail. The late sun looks a lovely golden colour giving your image a difference, well seen.

Reid, I can see the sun rays or sun beam reflecting on the bird is superb. I also like the posture of the bird. It gives a feeling that it is thinking. Lovely note. Thanks for sharing Ganesh

Well composed frame as the bird looks down into the right corner..Good details, BG, and DOF. Difficult exposure.

Great shot of the Hawk basking in the sun and giving you a fabulous pose. The sunlight makes its plumage shine and the natural environment as BG works well here. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
