    Nice capture James! Now if I can make a observation that could make a guy slap his forehead? Maybe finish the clone job by his wing tip? Nice work James.

    Absolutely smashing! I wouldn't think that the branch would be strong enough to support the hawk's weight but I guess the hawk knows much more about these things than I do or he wouldn't have tried to land there!

    Now saturate the hawk, to match the saturation level of the sky, and you have a winner. Well done , james.

    just a nit; now that you have "pruned' the twig, you have also pruned wing tip. Maybe just leave the twig as shot.

    Re: Red- tailed Hawk

    Thanks all glad that I narrowed it down to clipped wing and a saturation level. I will probably leave the feather tip alone and I am not sure how to go about boosting the saturation on the hawk since I flattened the Image.
