Beautiful shot Elroyie.
Perfect exposure and wonderful lighting.
Very well done
Bella imagen Elroyie.
Lástima que el ala inferior haya salido incompleta.
Excelente definicion y contraste... los colores son muy naturales.
Realicé un trabajo para modificar ese problema... espero sea tu agrado.
Beautiful image Elroyie.
Pity that the lower wing has left incomplete.
Excellent definition and contraste... the colors are very natural.
I made a work to modify that problem... I hope you like it.
Excellent shot! RAP has done a good job with the Workshop too. My only suggestion is that perhaps a little low radius USM would bring out a little more feather detail. As you say, it's a shame that the wingtip was clipped, but you've captured it so well that I can't do anything less than give you two points for it :-D
As a matter of interest, how did you manage to get the underside so well lit, and get such a high shutter speed - were you using flash, or was the sun quite low? Good work whichever!

Wow! Getting such details, focus and sharpening on a flying guy is such a hard work...and this one is just wonderful Elroyie :) I even can excuse the wing incident..;)) Great image!

As I commented on TE - This is simply stunning and the DOF and detail is excellent. Another one for my favourites.

Gorgeous, well done. Very clear, very sharp, light spot on.
This is very sweet light on a beautiful raprtor! You can fix it with selective cloning. Gerhard did ne for Mogens on a gull n a WS this week. Very nice.

Great flight capture. I did really like the workshop Rap did on it as well...it gives the Kestrel more room to move and completes the shot. Your timing is super here as well with a wonderful catch light in it's eye.

Elroyie, I agree it is avery good shot. If this is your best I cannot judge ;-).I also love the workshop made by 'RAP'. I adds a lot to the picture.

Another instance of your fabulous in-flight bird shots. Great posing, supreme light and detail, and beautiful colors. Well done, Elroyie, congratulations! - Ricardo's WS is easily one of the best I've seen on TN.

This image had the workshop done by Ricardo as the 'Featured Workshop' Lucky for me as until now I had not seen this wonderful image. The POV is great. Good under side view with good exposure and detail. The blue BG compliments the image. Shame the bottom tip of the wing has been cropped. Nicely done. Thanks.

I love the pictures of flying birds. Yours is really beautiful. Colors are great.
It is too bad that just a slight piece of the wing was cut, but I know how difficult taking such a picture is.
I like yours very much.
