Riding The Wind

By stevemelvin  
Another shot from Portugal. I was off on a wander around the harbour in Alvor, when I saw some birds circling overhead, so set the camera to AI-SERVO, set the lens to 200mm and clicked away!

All comments/criticisms very welcome.

Nice shot, the hunched shoulders and head, with arched wings works really well here. The tight crop with the diagonal comp also works. nice one.

The light coming through the wing feathers is good too.
