The blurred bottom of this photo concentrates the attention on the hawk`s head which is perfectly sharp. He sems to have quite a dangerous look in his eyes.

A great potrait, both the DOF and his pose an eyecontact. I think you should try to do something about the bright green in the foreground, a slight desaturation maybe.

Great sharp details with great colors on the image. Nice framing and DOF. Very well captured.

Excellent "hawk-eye" and DOF. The hawk is demanding the cameras attention, and you have captured it very well.

beautifull seen and captured It could well be taken in the wild, with a well blurred back ground to hid anything artifical, and the green blur framing the bird the magical feather details and that wonderful look in its eyes, one gets the feeling that if you could enlarge the eyes enough you wouldbe seen as the next meal on its mind :0)))#.

I love nature's photographies and yours is quite fantastic one. I would prefer to know this beautiful bird being free but...

Wow Booof, you've really nailed the focus here. It's absolutely spot on. Again, great framing and a perect background to show off this beautiful bird. Where is this barber's shop?

Those eyes are so intense, you can really tell he's a hunter. Good work with DOF as usual. The green blurred leaves create a good frame and the tones of the background match the bird very well.

She's got the look! Love this shotand especially the eye contact between the bird and the viewer.
I've a post of a caged hawk - the look is totally different
