    Nice shots james, hawks are tough to get close to.

    Nice shots indeed James. I prefer the second, either you were starting to get too close or something cute and fuzzy is about to become lunch. TFS

    Very nice James. What focal length were you shooting at?

    Hi James,

    Great captures.

    The first looks a tad over exposed on the chest.

    They both look under sharpened to me, but there's a risk of the branches becoming too sharp, so what I'd do is duplicate on a new layer (below), sharpen it, then erase top layer reveal the sharpened layer on the bird only, then flatten. Or whatever you normal layers working preferences are (as I'm aware this isn't probably the most robust way of working, e.g. if things go wrong; it isn't "best practice").

    Cheers,

    Thanks all. These were taken with 400 mm then cropped pretty hard. Thanks Dave I will try that .
