Tom, I hope you had enough time to run out of its flight course!  Impressive moment!

Unusual at long range.  Never really spent any time on this image because I have to many Osprey with fish at closer range or more MMs.  I find the BG interesting at f4.  Ran it trough Nik for dynamic contrast.  D7100/300 f2.8(naked for a change  ;) ) at f4.

Lovely Osprey shot Tommy.
I'm interested in the bokeh on this - looks quite "nervous" and less smooth than I'd expect. Is that just a product of the high contrast palm fronds or did you actually aim for this when you did your PP in Nik?

Colin, I was quite surprised.  All I did it NIK was increase dynamic contrast but not a lot.  All I can think of is that the line of Palms are quite tall and thin.  I was wondering about wind.  There is approx. 100+mtrs between the Osprey and tree.   
I will need to go back and see if the affect is there on shot either side.

Amazing image!


Very eye catching image, especially due to the BG, could you post one that has neutral PP - Just curious to see the image ;)


I'm sure some of the striking effect is because of the blades positioning around the central part of the image

My phone has inconsistent time lag up to 5 sec, so this was kind of luck...
