Hawks are lovely birds, keep taking the picture.

I don't know if you lightened the first picture or not, but it seems a little light. You might try darkening it a bit and then increasing the contrast. That might bring out the colors of the hawk more.

I agree with eric on the suggestions for the first one and I also applaud you for taking a few magnificent shots of a great looking bird. I especially love the expression in the second one's face. A bit of darkening and contrast increase is minor. You've done an excellent job, thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the responses guys. Appreciate your comments.

I have had my camera for 3 weeks now and am still learning and I really appreciate the constructive comments.

The sun was on the wrong side of the hawk and the first picture of the bird actually came out quite dark. Next time I will use spot metering. I did brighten it quite a bit and appears I overdid it. I will take your suggestions and go fool around with it some more.

I was pretty lucky getting this close to this wild hawk and really lucked out getting the wing extended shot. Glad you liked it.
