[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Crane (Grus grus)Israelís Huleh Valley is an important wintering location and crossing point along the eastern route. At the height of the season in November and December, some 40,000 cranes can be found in the valley.
I took this photo from a hide, with my 600 mm lens. The photo was not croped, the crane was just too close to me...

Very good details and superb background. Just a bit close to the frame.

Nice composition but the colors are too hard, somewhat overexposed.

Nice shot but cropped a bit close IMO.

Nice photo!
On my screen the colours look OK and I like them very much. The compositon is quite good, but I think I would give him a bit more space.
Though in summer near my house live a pair of very noisy cranes I've never managed to take good photo. They are quite shy and when they see someone get closer they run away, but what is strange they run not fly ;-) Even when dog is chasing them they don't fly away. Anyway, maybe I should hide to take this photo at last ;-)
Thanks for posting.

Very good shot, maybe cropped a bit too tight.
POV and sharpness are good.
