    Ungainly, but really impressive, and I suspect, rather large! I think the crop is perfect, and the dark blue sky makes a beautiful contrast to the white plumage.

    More well filled space with an interesting and majestic bird. One of my favorites.

    Ungainly perhaps but with a great beauty due to the fabulous skill of the photographer! This is the quality in avian nature shot I have always wanted to achieve but not come close to yet. Natural pose, caught wonderfully in flight in mid-beat recovery it looks, with great definition and a wonderful background with a deeply rich colouring throughout. No blown highlights here thous you came close on the breast, and still managed to retain definition in the blacks of the head and tail, perhaps losing only a little at the extreme dark end in the beak and feet. Beautifully frame, congrats on a great shot!

    appreciate the deep colors and focus.. at times, the vignetting is advantage
