A really nice shot.
As a matter of interest, how much shadow recovery didyou do? The brightness of the bird seems at odds with the darkness of the background and the rim lighting.

I like this. The snow helps lift it above a good shot to a great picture.

Fantastic Shot. One of the best Kite shots I have seen. Are you the chap who got his ARPS with a panel of Kingfisher shots ? If so, I was one of the panel members down in Bath. It was a fantastic panel and easily up to standard.
