A rather excellent photograph depicting this rather beautiful looking Red Kite. Beautiful natural colour, and rather excellent detail.

Regards Nathan

hi Andy

just a couple of notes that may help you with further of the same...

i) consider your composition - here the subject is fairly central or even positioned ot the right - ideally a subject will have more space in front of it than behind as it gives it room to breathe / talk / move

ii) consider the rule of reciprocity regards the relationship between shutter speed and focal length. 'breaking' or not followin gthis rule mnakes it difficult to avoid camera shake and as such introduces blur into an image

iii) remember to look at what is behind or around the main subject - here there are a couple of relatively minor distractions (light spots) to the background and also a dark object/area to the front of the subject

as with everything if you are 100% happy ith the image then ignore the above, but if only 99% happy then i hope this will be of assistance
