I like the sharpness of this image as well as the nice saturation on the sky. If you can PP the cable off the picture, it would make it perfect! What lens were you using?

Very impressive shot! While the wire is somewhat distracting, the bird is so sharp, with such nice texture, that it would be beyond my capabilities to clone out the wire over it. I'd leave it alone and enjoy it the way that it is - it's reality.

Hi,

Great shot !. I photochopped out the cable, hope you don't mind. ... the sky areas are easily cloned out cloning from adjacent areas with a very soft brush, the wing area is the difficult bit, you need to work with a fairly hard small brush so as not to spoil the sharpness, sample and copy the feather shading, and the feather roots from near areas. Enlarging the area you work on helps a lot. I finished by applying overall hi-pass sharpening. ... Jack.

Brilliant cloning job - I know I couldn't do so well.

Well, nothing wrong with the long end of that superzoom.

Nice shot of an immature Broad-winged Hawk, but in this case the wire is part of the context of the photograph - inasmuch as the bird is either landing or taking off, its open feetwould begrasping at air without the cable!
