If you use post processing to increase black level and contrast, it will look much better

Dont you think the darks are dark enough - if I push it anymore the shadows under the wing will delete any detail, and more noise will be generated.

Also its a crop.

The darkest part need to be almost black, need to look at your histogram during post processing. As it is, the picture looks like having a layer of fog over it. while making the darkest part black, you can pull a bit shadow to compensate, you will have more layers of light levels.

Very cool shot, Shalu.
Does this have the same meaning as when the minister says, "I now pronounce you man and wife...you may now kiss the bride?"  :p

Thank you, Mike! Well, they already had 5 kids last year, so they are no longer bride and groom :-P:lol:

Very true Shalu, but it seems that they have to renew their vows every spring. So it is sorta like they are a new bride and groom every year.  :p Did they manage to fledge all 5 last year?
That is really an excellent action BIF shot of them exchanging the gopher.

They sure are a pretty bird of prey, Paul. You got a great flight shot of this one.

Thanks LD.

I didn't know they do that Paul. I thought they were fearless predators.

Thank you very much, Mike! The kids all did fine and left to find their own turf. First the pair raised two young ones, then built another nest and raised three more kids.

Dont foreget though it is a Huge crop from 6000 its cropped down to 1800, so the detail is bound to take a hit.
