Great exposure and sharpness, and with the snow creates a very atmospheric image.

A really nice shot.
As a matter of interest, how much shadow recovery didyou do? The brightness of the bird seems at odds with the darkness of the background and the rim lighting.

i would suggest 'due to the conditions' is more apt - well done on a great image and POTW

Fantastic Shot. One of the best Kite shots I have seen. Are you the chap who got his ARPS with a panel of Kingfisher shots ? If so, I was one of the panel members down in Bath. It was a fantastic panel and easily up to standard.
