I like the dramatic position of the hawk's wings. The feathers and eye are sharp and include a spectrum from light to dark. Your rich blue background works well to set off the bird. Well done!   Posted: 01/18/2020 09:34:11

Beautiful bird... great capture handheld... love the blue background. Almost all of our photos this month have a strong blue feeling.   Posted: 01/20/2020 11:45:16

This a very nice capture of a hawk in flight. I love the detail, sharpness, and clarity you were to get throughout the image. You handled the colors and texture perfectly. Excellent Image.   Posted: 01/29/2020 10:58:22

This is a nice sharp shot. It looks like a great reference photo for a bird guide book.   Posted: 01/29/2020 19:55:27

Nice shot! It's amazing that you were able to capture a bird in flight right above your head, which also made your image more impactful than a bird flying across. I especially love its large wingspan against the deep blue sky.
