Great head shot Steve & first rate PP work as usual.Was this guy on his trainers glove,or in an enclosure,or? Whichever,the tight crop really works,a vibrant composition.

What a lovely tight crop for this bird's portrait to let us admire its face features thoroughly!
Very descriptive and nicely lit.
A beautiful frame to enclose this neat work.

Hi Steve, I like the tight crop with the dark bg. Looks like a young bird,still has the sharp stare of an older bird. Fiona

This is a gallery piece for sure. What can one say with a beautiful image such as this. The eye makes the whole image work. nice

Excellent work Steve, and the perfect title!
I love the close up concentrating on just the head and shoulders.
As for the eye? You got the colour and the catchlight, and he certainly looks to be having a good think!!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi, Steve. Nice portrait of the falcon, well composed to bring out the details. Nature has endowed these birds of prey with all the senses to hunt for food. The colors of the eye contrast nicely with the color and texture of the eye. Cheers.

Une image époustouflante de part les détails et ce fond noir. Magnifique.
