It is clear to me that you are very much a pro! I will also say that I like the way you critique. A refreshing breath indeed. I would like to see a bit more honesty, but hesitate to do so when other don't!

Just awesome Howard! Incredible combination of sharpness on the body and blur on the wings. An one-of-a-kind image to be truly proud of.

Outstanding. I have cardinals in my backyard and know how difficult it is to catch them in fly. Beautiful work and congrats.

Howard I got the Calendar with this image on it in the mail the other day. It is so beautiful. The outside of the envelope had this image on it also.
