Like the stock image and what you did with it !!! The camera used is a great performer, bought one specifically for a trip I could not take anything else and was happy with results, even surprised I would say ... its a keeper !!!

Since its a digitally enhanced image might go in and lighten the bird a bit more, just a thought which might work. Like it a lot, good work !!!

Very lovely creation- beautiful background and pose of the kestrel. Agree with Al- just lighten up the bird a bit-it might bring out the eye more- even a catch-light. Lots of potential here. Wonderful mood and colors.

Definitely agree with you on the Sony RX10 IV Alfred - I've been VERY pleased by it's performance and image quality!

Dan, beautiful composition — love how the Kestrel is peering down and through the frame. A wonderful piece of art.

A sweet pose. A little light in the eye would take this up several levels, Dan.
