Nice sharpness on this beauty and great pose. Thanks for the info re its place in the tern world relative size. I'm far from an expert on post processing but can see a bit of noise in the blue sky that I suspect could be worked on if desired. Solid coloured skies used to be a problem in the early days of digital if I recall correctly.

Like the comp which is accentuated by the Tern's wing position. Details are good Paul, but get Gary's thoughts re the bg. Worth a tickle.
Make your life spectacular!

A beautiful shot of this tern with excellent background information. Nice flight pose and color. Gary and Dave make valid points on the noise.

You and the others are correct about too much noise.
I hope the next submission is better. Thanks for commenting.
