[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is our friend Gordon the Lanner falcon again.
This Whipsnade wildlife park falcon was coming back from doing a few circles of the bird arena.
He was completely in the frame, but this is one very quick bird. So do I put this in the just missed theme or not?

Superb action shot!
Really amazing.
A great composition, and a wonderful detail level!
Did this falcon fly at the catch instant?
I don't think you have to put it in the near missed, it's a success, I believe.

Very good up close to the action shot Alan. Quick reflexes from you I bet. Very well done.
But at the top of the picture I can see a black line around him. Maybe a bit oversharpened? But a really good composition. Well done.

No, not just missed at all. Awesome shot, not easy to get these quick birds. I love the POV. Well done

yes it's realy a nice one Alan,
fantastic action shot, what a capture, great in pov fantastic in dof, very good details very good job I like it a lot, my compliments for it,

Really nice shot Alan, the POV is excellent and very captivating. Lovley details and composition. Well done

Missed.... what? :) Tack sharp close up Alan. Realy impressive impact in this photo. One could argue the composition and frame but I like it as it is. Very well done.

Fantastic shot Alan! This has huge impact factor and your title tells the story..Excellent moment captured with full extension of wing and tail feathers with this classic downward gaze. Very well done!

Great capture, maybe framed a bit too tight. Great details.
Well done.
TFS.
