    Hold on a minute while I pick up my jaw on the floor...

    Was the sky really that pale? It works well to highlight the bird darker color; just like a portrait. Number #2 in particular is wonderful with a stunning amount of details and such intensity. National Geographic worthy.

    Just wow is not enough, these are magnificent!!!

    Great work.

    This is why I call you Mr. Obelix.
    You prove it each time you post. I don't know anyone who is better not that its a competition.
    But you are in what I would say in the top 2 and I hope you know what number I have given you.
    CC is always welcome, the good and the bad. I promise not to take it personal as I know it wasn't meant that way.

    Thanks guys!
    Yes it was hazy overcast day, and this is dark bird so sky is totally blown out.

    I don't mind the white sky at all in this case as Stef said. It sort of makes it more of a isolated portrait of sorts.... If the sun was out, the lighting would be so much harsher and the dynamic range would be pushed much harder. Therefore, I don't think the bird detail would be as impressive, but who knows....
