[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An Osprey with fish taken at Iona.This is in the evening and sun was going down fast, so the lighting was difficult.
Iona is a large natural area just north of the Vancouver Intn'l Airport.
I've done Osprey notes before in my gallery,so none on this one.
Thanks for the view, and any critique.

Hi Doug,
I'll be back for critique.
Thanks for posting.

The beautiful light is as much the subject here as the osprey, I think. It is a lovely photo. I love the simple OOF background. Did you crop this quite a bit? The image seems a tiny bit softer than I would expect that lens to be. Maybe it was hand held???

Evelynn : )

Hi again Dough,
I saw beautifull photos in you gallery and surprised to see that they did not take necessary attention and point. I thing that you photos take more attention soon. Kind regards,
