Love the panning action and the shallow DOF. The part in focus is super sharp. Great note about the reason of following. Lovely colors and a great action photo.

Great composition, I felt like he's still flying just in front of me. Image directly implies sense of flying to the viewer. An astonishing POV, sharpness on the body completes the scene.Great work.
Well Done & TFS.

Splendid in-flight of this impressive vulture!
The sharpness is amazing and the fact that everything else is blurry just makes it all ever greater!
Excellent work with only a 70mm...you really were lucky to have found such a curious one :)) (maybe he liked your shower-gel...lol)
Great POV and DOF, really good exposure, lovely colors and tones. Also very well framed and composed.
BRAVO and TFS

wow, amazing inflight-shot, shir! :-)
he was really close, cool, excellent capture with great
sharpness on the body and a terrific motion-blur on the wings
and the background.
you may have taken a shower, but perhaps forgot the deoderant. *lol*
wonderful job & best wishes, thorsten.

How can it be so close??? I'm really amazed by this POV, wow! I photographed some too but I never was that close and I had to use 400mm. This is just great! I like this sense of speed we feel in the BG and the blurred wings are just wonderful. This is really well done with excellent timing! Thanks,

What a shot, this is excellent. I love the movement it really feels like he is speeding past us. This is helped by the excellent POV

Me imagino que debió ser imponente ver de tan cerca un ave tan grande y oir el sonido del vuelo.
Has conseguido una gran sensación de movimiento paralizando el ave y dejando el fondo movido. Excelente luz, color y composición.
Un saludo, José M.

Un gran barrido de este aura, aunque creo que si le hubieras podido tomar a v 1/200 estaría perfecta. Aún así una gran toma y nada fácil.
