Another shot from the session 2 years ago with the Capercaillie.

Initially I was not able to show these images in order to protect the integrity of the site, so I have loads of these that have never been seen. It was only a very short session, but because the conditions were just about perfect I rather filled my boots Smile

Also an excuse to try the new frame on a portrait shot

Nicely captured pose Cheryl - again lots of detail in this well exposed image. I think I'd prefer it to have a little more space within the frame but that's just my love of space which I'm prone to overdo on occasions Wink I'm sure you'll have many more versions to please though.

Fine viewing.

Mike

Love the pose & the tight crop - I would rather a tight crop than a lot of space - as with everything it's purely a matter of personal preference. Looks like a Spanish Senora with her fan. Just beautiful. Louise

Agree with Mike, especially on the RHS.

Thanks all.

Well as you would expect I have many where the caper is full in frame, and it would be easy to have loaded one of those, but this bird dominates it's environment and I felt that filling the frame showed this.

I've loaded many previous where landscape is as important as the bird, but it is time to give the bird some prominence.

As it is looking right that would unbalance the composition in my view.

Hi Cheryl
Love the composition, and because I am a vegetarian I prefer this view to one on a table.

Regards

Trev.
