Bom dia Erwin,
Even though the white background does not offer a strong contrast to highlight the shapes, colors and tone of the scene I think it had a good role here, since it seems to me you wanted to privilege the poetic aspect of the image.
Very nice feather sharpness.
Have a good Sunday.

I echo Raimundo critique about the fact in this shot for the not-so-pleasing sky but as far as details are concerned you have achieved on the wings of vulture are well done, Erwin!

Great sharpness and nice POV with amazing exposure on bird#s body.
Well caught DOF and clarity too.

Kind regards,

Hoi Erwin,

Very good capture of this superb bird. Lot of details on its wing, not so much details on the body due to the background light.
Great composition.

Hi Erwin,
A superb capture of this vulture with wings still partially spread. Quite good details in the plumage while the posture of the bird is marvelous.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Great timing and capture of this vulture which looks like it's ready to spring into action. Nice details in spite of the harsh lighting condition. Love your pov. Well done, tfs.
