Hi Mircea,
an excellent shot.
Sharp with excellent detail in the feathers.
A good composition although I would have left more space to put the head in the centre.
Brilliant saturation that brings out the different shades of brown on the bird's feathers well.
Excellent contrasting BG.
Well done,

Hi Mircea,
Wonderful capture of this lovely bird.
Very beautiful light and warm colors.
Sharpness, composition and exposure are excellent and the feather details and way the Caracara does stand out against the blue sky are great.
I also like the frame very much.
Thanks for sharing and the good note.
Best wishes,

The is a nice sharp capture of this large bird. it looks as if it were taken in very bright mid day sun but you haven't lost any details. Nice work.
