CommentAs requested in the last newsletter, I am submitting this to the critique gallery for consideration to submitting it to the new gallery. I saw this bird flying in a distance with the snake and after it landed I zigzagged to get near it, taking photos as I got closer. This was the best. However it was taken against a white cloudy sky, in the heat of the day. Not ideal, but the photo had to be taken. Processed in ACR (exposure increased), dodging on darker parts of bird and some vibrance used. A few annoying branches removed and sky replaced. Should this photo be submitted to the new Gallery?
