    Another hovering bird....todays Osprey

    Watched this guy come in and check the pond over real good but there really is not much in the way of fish so no dive. I did the best I could trying to fit all 8 shots in one and to keep the sky constant. I also wanted to keep a directional flow. The birds are not placed quite as pretty as the Kingfisher one I did but it had half the shots. Much easier. C&C always welcome.

    Cool pp but maybe the last 3 should be taken out to make the rising up a bit more dramatic?

    Hi Paul, I agree with Bobo...take out the last three. Also I would place them beginning it the lower left corner diagonally to the upper right corner with the hovering Osprey the last. Great captures, good detail it just looks a little cluttered to me. Keep shooting my friend.

    Hi Paul, I really like the arangement as it is. I can see the clearly defined progression in sequence from point where the Osprey rises up to look for prey to the point where he launches into the dive. A very nice arrangement IMHO.

    Paul, that's a sweet composite! I am so glad to see the osprey are back. I just saw my first last week in Kent. Anyway, I like the composite just the way it is. But, if I were to tweak it slightly, I might remove the outermost two images... the ones in the lower left and right corners. Either that, or I would keep them and expand the canvas so that the margin around the corner images is the same as the uppermost image.

    Thanks for the input guys, it does seem a little cluttered. I am trying to show the full cycle so if possible I will keep all the poses, although a little play with the arrangement is surely in order. All good points or ideas and some good insight to mull over in the proscess. Thanks again.

    Hi Paul, I agree with Frank, the arrangement allows us to see what the osprey was up to, good pp.

    LOL! If he's not careful, he'll cook more than just the fish!

    Paul, for some reason what you said tickled my laughing box, I laughed for about 10 minutes without stopping, thank you I needed it.
