This is quite an amazing capture and its difficult to fault it on technical things due to its obvious need for timing. Well taken and seen.

I agree with pulsar69! I've been trying to get a bird in flight since I started digital, this is a wonderful shot - one to be proud of. The only way of perfecting it is to turn the birds around so they are facing you!!

Not an easy subject to capture, they move so fast when fighting.

Well done.

Terrific shot and detail.. I would look at darkening the feathers on the underside.. make them stand out a bit more, and possible increase saturation.. otherwise, not a lot really.

A great capture... I too have been trying for shots like this but they are hard to come by... by the time your camera is out. I am with KarenFB in that it would have been priceless if the birds were facing. Regardless, well done.

Wow. This is amazing. It must have taken awhile to get this picture.
