    Puzzled at the placing. Mepo has a point but I still like the overall presentation here.

    Really excellent. Love the position of the subject, the out of focus background, and the wonderful glint in his eye.

    Great pose and good crop. Depth of field works well here also.

    Forkcandles: if you have a good reason why you would prefer the bird to be looking from left to right instead . . . I would love to hear it.

    good result with eye highlights and would have preferred the bird to be looking from left to right

    The background birds distract slightly but the sharpness of the bird takes over. Nice shot.

    You know, Mepo, I had that exact same thought, i.e., to crop the lower body. However, I had already set the size format to 6x4 as I was planning to have it printed on a 16" x 24" canvas . . . so I just left it. Besides, a 6x4 format, downsizes perfectly to 960 X 640 pixels for Panachallenge entries!

    I like this shot but prefer a crop to cut of the lower part of the birds body to concentrate the attention on that beautiful curved neck. Nice highlight in the eye.

    great technique - subject sharp and background adds interest in my view

    Nice bird yet somehow looks underexposed.Details not as sharp as I would like - no tripod @ 315mm? Otherwise nicely framed, composed, with a great background which really makes the whole work and brings the shot up to another level. (I should add you've got that eye light which is, IMHO, essential for all great animal photography.)
