I always thought Ravens were black...did not realize they had shades of deep indigo and blue. Love the beady eye too! Good capture showing lots of detail in the feathers!

There is definately a lot of detail in the shot. Really Nice! And the composition too!
Also, thanks for the detail! It's nice not only to see the shot, but on a side note also see what f5.6 @ 300mm can get you!
Take care,
Glen

That eye really stands out. I think black birds are more difficult than white to catch detail in. Nice shots.

A difficult shot well done. Black is hard to get detail sometimes. Nice to see the hues of color that really make up the black.

i find ravens/crows hard to shoot
i took one last weekend and the feathers are so glossy that it came out pure black and pure white, with not a lot of detail at all
these are really well exposed

That is really nice. Its interesting that the crop looks sharper than the original, at least on my screen! As has already been stated, great job on the exposure.

Very nice shot!

Both black and white birds are very hard to get the exposure right on and yours is right on!
