Superb - simply amazing. The eyes are terrific and they make the shot for me.


Nicely done on the eyes, but personally I feel that the cropped wings spoil it a little. I would prefer it either much tighter in to the face, so the face fills a larger part of the frame, or further out so the bird is complete. To me this is somewhere in between, and although the eyes make it striking, it could have been better.

Hello Kona
What a great flight shot,
Perfect compo and lighting,
Excellent shot.


WOW. Similar to a previous one but with so much higher quality!
I also like the play of lights in the feathers.

Hi Kona,
Could be puzzled about the wings...
Despite the former, I do like your image; wonderful specific in flight; your trademark.

bello scatto.

Hi Kona,

What a beautiful DOF on a moving subject! It's so amazing and great! I know it could have been tough, but a better framing could have added a lot to the photo. Thanks for sharing it!
