Osprey with successful catch.

By AnnJ
I am still trying to select 3 images in our forthcoming Camera Club competitions!

The problem has been that several of them look very dark and or without detail in the shadows, or are soft in wing detail etc or some of the whites are blown out, these faults being magnified when I print them. Club competition judges can be very picky!!

So here is the last I can find in the batch I took and I shall have to print the best then make the big decision!

Thank you for your patience, help and comments as they really do help me look at the images from an often different point of view.

Your club should also take into account the level of difficulty that a shot like this creates. I think that this is also very good in a compositional sense. The tones look good on screen but printing can be a totally different ballgame. Good luck with the competition and I have enjoyed looking at these shots immensely

There is bound to softness due to movement somewhere in those wings.
This is exceptionally good Ann - I guess you'll need to print all of them - see which are best
and can form a sequence. We'll all be interested in comments & results.

Looks perfectly good to me, a pity I've given all my awards today so you'll have to have a virtual one (and that's something the judges can't award you!)

For me, this is the best of the bunch, with your other 3 choices coming close seconds. I like all of the water spray, and being able to see the whole of the fish.
