very good catch , crisp & sharp. My niggle is the flash lighting which I know is unavoidable. I would recommend that you warm this shot up a little during post processing , 7

because of the angle, looks like it's missing a wing, so that's a little distracting to m...other than that, ok overall 6

Nice capture. It looks a little weird to have only one wing visible due to circumstances beyond your control.

Great capture.pity about the closer wing sort of disappearing into body of bird. Sharp in the face and very well done on this shot!!!

how do you get the background black? these are always great, because I never see them outside my place

First class capture, though it's disturbing me that the bird appears to be missing a wing!

This almost looks like it stopped and posed for you, it's so rich and clear. Very well done indeed, though I'm afraid I can't stop obsessing with the missing wing!

colour is lovely but i don't like the fact that only one wing shows
