Lovely capture. Whatever the bird is landing on looks odd though- as if it's hovering in mid air.

Right time, Right place, and losts of blown shots I bet. :) You've captured the power and grace of a bird of prey here. Nice sharp focus and detail all the way across. I might crop the left side a bit to eliminate teh building if possible. This is actually a great animal portrait, you can see the concentration in the bird's face as he lands. 9

Nicely timed and composed photograph, with good detail in the feathers and narrow enough depth of field to blur the background. Well done. ((8))

Very cool, I love these kind of shots. I'm certainly in no position to offer you any critiquing - I just wish I could do half as well.

very cool. it's a pity that the backdrop isn't more distinct from the bird, but at least it's out of focus. good catch!

This is a great shot, I would like a slightily tighter crop - would make it more dramatic, but a nice capture nonetheless.
