Well captured Dave, lucky man getting this in the wild shot, keep them coming mate.
A great opportunity, dj, and good advantage taken of it. You have a good clean background and some nice detail, and your exposure has avoided burnout in the white feathers. Although the buzzard is facing to the left, its head is turned to the right, and so it's hard to decide where to leave space, so I have gone for a square format in my modification. I adjusted levels slightly and selectively sharpened the eyes and beak. I cloned out the white thing top left and also the horrible flies that had settled on the bird.
You've done wel to capture this.
I've shot hundreds of shots of birds, mostly in my garden or on the Downs close to where I live but I've never captured one like this.
Pamela has pointed out where it might be improved and her mod. is good.
Thankyou every one for your valid crits and mods.I believe the best result for me would lie between the two.I did crop considerably, but fear too much will result in a grainy image at full screen. I might be wrong,but I don't think any photo editing software can compensate for that.
The flies confirm the title and vice versa,horrible as they may be.
well im pretty sure that this isnt taken at full frame with a 105mm lens so the crop is pretty heavy.
although people are talking about more cropping, im sure that its already cropped too far to retain quality and will have lost a fair bit of detail. its a shame because it didnt need cropping that much. smaller in frame would have just has nice. its all a balance because now you couldnt print this a3 (not enough detail left) and if you did it would be too big in frame.
other wise lucky you being there and well done getting the shot, ive never got closer than 50 yards to one
Thanks Phil for your opinion.Yes I was lucky.As I looked over a fence,there were two of them.One flew off immediately(typically),the other just sat there.I did get a second shot,straight on side view,with less cropping,checked quickly and withdrew,believing in minimum disturbance.
