[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This hawk was shot in an enclosure (VINS Raptor Park) with low light using 640 ISO. The background was added to give a more natural appearance using PS and to remove distracting details so as to focus the maximum attention on the subject.

A 1.4x extender was used giving 280mm FL.

Hello Larry,
Excellent photo taken in perfect timing. Very beautiful colours, great sharpness and a very good DOF. Even the position of the head is marvelous. Great blurred BG.

Hello Larry,
Very attractive image of this Red-tailed Hawk. The detail is excellent and the colors beautiful and true to life. The pose shows off the plumage very nicely and you even captured a little catchlight in it's eye. Great work!!

Hallo Larry,
a superb capture of this hawk taken from an excellent POV in a great posture, very good sharpness and fine detail on the plumage, splendid natural colours and good contrast against the BG
Best regards

Hello Larry,
Had a look to your gallery and I have seen very fine pictures. This one I like very much for the artistical display of wings of the hawk, and the fine color-combination. Your work with PS was successful.
Kind regards
