Hi, John. Well done with this hawk portrait. Lovely detail on the feathers and sharpness is just very fine. Good lighting and depth. Thanks for sharing.

Nice detail and the exp on the chest looks good...Sidelight looks a little harsh. Head looks a bit over sharpened. I always recommend natural perches when it comes to birds photography. Also you should leave a bit of room top and bottom for the virtual tail and more space on top of the head. BG is a bit distracting with the green patches also needs a touch more noise reduction.
