Thanks for the nice comments and votes! I knew the white background would be controversial. The picture is backlit against a completely cloudy sky. Taken 1 2/3rds stops over the meter reading, to get get the details of the birds.

Wow, how did you get this, nice image, 9.

I don't care for the harsh white background, but the quality of the focus and exposure on the subjects makes up for that. The superb digobnal composition and the 'interestingness' factor mark this out as something special.

Great capture love the whited out back ground really make the birds pop. :)

I believe this could have been a great picture - but to me it looks way over processed and the birds look like they were made of plastic or something. And I wonder why you chose to make the background all white?

I really like the composition of this shot a lot, and you captured them in the perfect pose. Great job!

I don't know if you blew out the background of had it white on purpose, but I'd have liked to see a different colour for contrast. If it were me, I'd have liked to see one or other osprey (possibly the one on the left) as the focal point of the shot and the other OOF slightly. but that's just me.
