I love this shot very much Julie.
It is a great composition and the colors and details are excellent.
The BG is superb and the POV is excellent.

Well done, Julie. Good information. Nice clarity on the subject and blurring of the background. The detail at the distance from which you're shooting is excellent.

Hello Julie,
such a clear shot and I love the background colour.
well done

Great work on a diffifcult subject! Nice POV and framing with the leading space in front of the osprey. I wish they were as plentiful here.

I really love the background in this image and the spread of the birds wings is awesome.

Grand image of this elegant bird with superb DOF, Julie.

Wow now that's a great shot, I love the intense look in it's eye. I see you got this one around multnomah falls, one of the many nest sites. I like the room in front of him and the blurred forest behind, excellent job, your best yet I think!
