CommentThanks for all the valuable feedback on the earlier versions of this subject. I went back to the shooting sequence and thought that this shot from a couple of frames earlier in the fly-past incorporated many of the suggestions while retaining the good points. I have plenty of wide shots showing the full bird but what I am really after is something a bit different, and perhaps a bit more risky, achieved by tighter cropping. If it is not too much to ask, would you please let me know how you feel about this version.
Thanks, Ian.
