This would almost certainly have ribboned in the animals in motion - and did pretty darn well here too.

Great capture Miles and good use of that camera.

It is an interesting observations that Deb makes. I saw the pixelation on one computer/monitor and not another...very strange stuff....

This is a GREAT image - the close crop, the head on flight, the kinetic feel, and the complementary colors of the bird and the background to emphasize the stealth-like qualities of this magnificant bird.

I like that you have captured the intent in the eyes and the movement. The tight crop adds to the drama. Fab job.

OMG . WOW .. etc etc .. this is insane .. an amazing photograph and i'd imagine it would take a huge degree of skill .. catching a moving target like this bird in flight, coming straight at you .. incredible ..
you've photographed with such skill and created a brilliant image with your crop .. so powerful and dramatic .. WOW .. !!..:)

A solid image that is crisp, sharp and properly framed and composed - a technical success in every way. From an artistic standpoint, it has significant impact being richly colored with excellant detail. This image would have worked as a black and white as well. A perfect demonstration of the power of properly controlled light and focus. A top ten image and a very strong contender for a ribbon. Well done.
