Prachtig scherp, waardoor de details van de veren fraai uitkomen.

I saw that annoyance before I read the caption. His admonishment to Rusty is audible! (he goes to the zoo too? Intriguing notion...).
One thing I like about being friends with you is that I feel we can be candid with each other. I know you will take any criticism as constructive, as I will from you:-). So, what is it?
Just that I was surprised to see that you allowed such a perfectly focused close-up to be 'blemished' (IMHO) by the shadow. You are usually such a perfectionist:-).
Still friends??:-)

Great comment Stewart.. Yes, there are two zoos in Holland where dogs are allowed.. He often is timid there, but gets crazy when he sees makis or prairie dogs.
Hell no, I do not take offense easily...:) That shadow could not be avoided. I had to step over a small fence, put the lens in a maze and saw the netting of the cage threw many shadows..

Thanks, Nico. Now Ana wants to know if you have to pay for Rusty to go in to the zoo.

Yes Stewart/Ana. Dogs are welcome, but at the cost of 4 euro :) Have a nice day! www.ouwehand.nl/Bezoekersinfo/Prijzen-en-Tickets.html

You have excellent shots in zoos and this one is really good. He didn't like Rusty? I would like to see reaction of Rusty:)

W O W !!! Perfect pose! However, my mediocre eyes say (IMHO) that had you raised a wee bit of exposure (or brightness) in post-processing around the beak's area the subject would had been illuminated in a much more perfect cohesion.

Having opined the above; I still learn from greats like you. :)

Thank you..Yes, I also was tempted to brigthen that area up, but when I choose different monitors settings (normally it's on "text"), it looked well enough..The light isn't perfect, but at least it hit the eye...:)
