Default Morning Hawk Shot

Swansons Hawk I think

Poor light , Poor Back ground
BUT Sometimes you can`t be Picky

EPL-5 FT 70-300 ISO 1600 Shutter 500 F 7.1 200mm Hand Held

Looks good though. I can never get bird shots that I'm even half happy with. Eventually I want to lose the 45-200 in favor of the m43 75-300 or panny 100-300, but that's about four or five steps away I think.

I think I'd be tempted to just crop it to be portrait type orientation and not even deal with the background.

Under those conditions that shot worked out well. Good job Fred.

I agree with Sammy, crop portrait and in this case keep 'rule-of-thirds' to the front, adjust noise, add sharpening with a touch of fill light and it'll look a whole lot different.

Great looking bird and finishing the photo isn't much for a good looking photograph.

I third the notion of cropping a bit and also agree that you did well even in bad light. The sensor on the E-PL5 surely helped, I know ISO 1600 on my E-PL2 would have been a lot more noisy.

Cool. I actually think the white background here makes it stand out a little from all of the similar types of bird shots you'll see out there (though I like those too).
