Great detail in this picture, great focus and exposure. I like the composition too, the eyes are in focus without the face being central.

This is a great close-up of a vulture. The focus is excellent and the exposure is well done. Slight nit on the over exposure on top of the head, but that does not really distract in this composition. Good depth of field and BG.
Very well done for your 2nd posting to TN.

Wonderful portrait. The lighting conditions look difficult (the highlights on the head are a bit blown out), but you could probably fix it a bit by darkening. The clarity and detail are perfect. The eyes are especially powerful, big and black, very hypnotizing!

Hello Teunie, nice shot. Good close up, with a good composition and focus. My only nit is that it is slightly overexposed on top of the head. Well done.

Opnieuw zien wij van u een werkelijk goed detail foto uit onze Zoo in Antwerpen, u maakt wel mooie scherpe foto's en de donkere achtergrond is good gekozen
Groeten vrouw van John

the vulture´s look is terrific and
there so many details.
a little OE on the head,
but that´s not so bad.
well seen & done, thor.

Who knew a vulture could look pretty? The pink and chocolate colors work really well for him. Sharp focus, I really like the square framing too. Thank you- Nichole

Thanks for your visit. This vulture attires my attention! What a look, it is so close!!! I like the eye contact and details. Here where I live, we have some in the mountain no far and sometimes they happen to fly near by but they are too high in the sky for me to photograph them... Those we have here are called in French: Urubus à tête rouge. TFS,

Wat ik heel goed vind aan deze foto is de scherptediepte. Met name is hij van bek tot oog scherp. Met een diafragma van 3,2 sta ik even te kijken dat je dit voor elkaar gekregen hebt.
Wat ik minder smaak is de 'overbelichting' bovenaan de kop.
Ik heb wat ervaring met fotograferen van soortgelijke vogels en kamp vaak met dezelfde problematiek.
Maar de DOF vind ik zoals reeds gezegd outstanding.

great portrait of this vulture, like an old aristrocat with its elaborate color. The details are very crips. Nice head on POV. Lighting and exposure are very good. The beautiful neutral BG lets the bird stand out very well.

Very nice eye to eye shot of this beautiful bird with excellent reproduction of the plumage and skin. Perfect rich colours and very exact DOF as well as the cropping. Very good portrait work. My best wishes and compliments.
