Peregrine Falcon
Photographed byGraeme Lembcke on Thu 2nd Aug, 2018 and uploaded on Fri 3rd Aug, 2018 .
CommentMale Peregrine Falcon (on right) returned with prey for his mate.
The photograph was taken under rather less than ideal lighting conditions with backlight filtered thru the above tree canopy. I have made several adjustments in Lightroom, exposure, highlights, shadows, etc and the image has been cropped quite a bit but I need another set of eyes to give me some guidance as to whether I have done too much, or could I do more.
